Very tidy indeed. Love the sweep of those forks especially.

Looks really smart.

Just the sort of thing I'm looking to build.

Is that your preferred type of saddle :o

i absolutely love this saddle.... only reason im replacing is due to the front being torn :(

its honesly the most comfortable thing ive ever ridden saddle wise...

i had a well worn brookes saddle on my old roadie (got stolen) and that was possibly the only thing i could compare it to.... and that leather one was new and therefor fitted to my arse :)

id love to find another avocet like this :(

I suspect I'm a victim of copying others by using minimalist saddles, I then have to go and buy extra padded shorts :?

Thinking about it, it makes far more sense to have the padding in the seat. I just got a gel saddle on a bike I bought and removed it without trying, I'll dig it out and give it a go. :D
