This popped up on my search for a plain blue Flite.. not a flite and not blue but it was nearby and too cheap not to have a look. Seems ok, 267g, date stamped 99.

Anybody know anything about these saddles? it's very slim at the back, is it intended for mtb? I noticed a couple on a local forum that were just bare plastic. Perhaps BMX :?

Reckon I'll use it for a while and see how my arse relates while I wait for that perfect flite. Huge shame that a splash of yellow turns my bike into ronald mcdonald :cry:

I had a black and silver one with manganese rails, it was lighter than my white label flite but I found it very hard and uncomfortable.
I think they were for road and MTB use, just like the flite, but cheaper.

Went out for a really fun, wet and rocky arvo... no complaints from arse thus far. Nice little saddle.

Yes I have a shop demo one with just the plastic top no leather/padding in sight here ........very hard plastic.....put it on my single speed but had to take it off.....even wearing 2 pairs of shorts didn't help. :cry:

Perfect for wet muddy rides on the single speed though. lots of walking :lol:
