Took this out again for the old commute, may stick a charge spoon on it. That Flite was not kind....

Great build - nice to see a Kona getting a new lease of life. I might also put my hand up and say how chuffing uncomfy Flite saddles are. For such a coveted saddle, they don't have hurt - that said I think we probably have similar, and contrary, bottoms to the majority! :D

I was never a fan of the Flite, not to say it isn't a good saddle, it's just my ar$e isn't Flite shaped.

Trouble is they look so good :wink:

Those charge spoons are hard to beat, this now has a brown 'leatherette' one, and now this bike gets used more than my stumpy! (Which now also sports a very modern 'bling white' charge spoon).

I actually really like them . I use this on commutes along a bumpy old railway line, the are super comfy but I wouldn't have them on the war horse.... I recommend everybody to try a pair at least once.
