Nice indeed. How are those Charge saddles and how light are they?
I'm also considering brown leather saddle for my ti ride :D


I've not used it really, but will report back ;)

It's the steel railed one, I can take it off and weigh it for you if you like?

If I like it, I'll probably change it for a Ti one.

Cheers

I'm so happy it went to Martin! It's definitely in the right hands. He got it for quite a bit less than the DBA price and it was worth it. He's done a bang up job already! :D


Thanks Paul :) I was hoping to get out today, but just not feeling well enough at the moment :(

Thank you. I have already ordered the ti version. I think it weighs around 230 grams.

Very tidy

I'd definately prefer to have an R36 fork up front though :D

That SID is a better fork than any RC-36, leave it. I think it looks good with the rest of the build too.
