Seen a few saddles on here that are basically rails with a saddle thats as thick as a sheet of paper. Who makes those??

Apologies if this is easy, I cant seem go find them anywhere and im curious about them.

Do you know which one he got? They all seem to be around the £100 mark for SLR ones, though I am not sure I will get one - I just think they look awesome!

:lol:
They are a superb saddle, brilliantly well shaped, but just about 10mm too narrow for me, as discovered at Whinlatter last year. At least it took my mind off my legs, which hurt much less than my arse after 30 miles! :shock: :roll:
