    Sorry to interrupt, but I want to take that bike for a spirited ride.

    There's a horn under the hood too and it prevents rotation. You'll just have to trust me. I'm not unwrapping and swapping bars just to show the point :)

    Could be slightly different than the Ritchey NeoClassic. I swear I'm not making this up. When I do my SR12 build on my Sachs, I'll try to take some pics of the issue with the Ritchey bars.

    3t has a model called the superleggera pro. Decent weight, classic bend. The transition from bar to hoods is not as smooth as with my ritchey evomax, but still acceptable. Like Mickey mentioned, with campagnolo ergos I have to use a classic bend because I have short fingers.

    Aha - I am so #@) dense sometimes. I understand what Mickey is talking about now.

    Hestra glove size is 10/11. So octave plus 3 I think on the piano. So reach bar to lever can be pretty wide.

    Aha, but therein lies the catch: That saddle is far from hard-ass - it’s seriously comfortable.

    Now ask me why I was stupid enough to sell it... #facedesk

    I ride the budget friendly version of that saddle on one of my bikes: an original Flite with the leather and padding removed (because my ass had previously worn though it). Surprisingly to me, it was comfortable without padding or leather. Comfortable enough for me to do a 240 km road ride on it this past spring. With good bibs the lack of padding is not very noticeable to me and the shell on the nylon version has a lot of suspension. I suppose the saddle shape just works for me.

    I've not had the chance to try the carbon version, but I bet I would have liked it.

    I'm currently doing my best not to buy the NOS carbon & Ti Flite Evolution (and the NOS white leather one) that's on eBay. I probably wouldn't even use it, but it would be nice to know I've got one if I ever did want to.

    AU$700 shipped, though. Holy cow... I've had 2 of them in the past, plus the Carbon-Kevlar Evo2 pictured above, plus black leather, white leather and grey leather ones - if I only I still had them all now...

    $700AUS for a saddle? That's like $12.95US. No wait. $555.45?! Look, we all love you here for your consumerist ways. You buy and sell stuff so we don't have to. But let's step back from the cliff, eh? I have this Prologo saddle - the Scratch M5. Great amazingly great saddle I think. Get one of those. Then if you like it, you'll have money leftover to get M5 saddles for the rest of your bikes.

    That’s the even more ridiculous thing about me hovering over the buy button: I know that even if I did put it on a bike I’d only revert back to my SQlab saddles anyway - they’re too damn comfortable not to use.

    Iíve been using the Oval R700 after losing a set of rotundos and find them pretty awesome. Have them on multiple bikes. At around $40AU theyíre cheap, but definitely not nasty. Not sure if you can get them in a 40 but they work for me.

    Owning both a flite evo and a generic carbon one from China, I can only confirm that the flite evo has definitely some damping characteristic that generic carbon saddles do not have. That evo2 with the kevlar/carbon mix is probably even more supple.

    I made sure I scratched mine so I'm never be tempted to sell it. They sell for stupid prize when NOS (although I got mine for around 80usd out of luckyness) but once they have the slightest scratch they are worth nothing.

    Eh, that bike is precisely what this thread is about - finding something that works efficiently whilst on the absolute limit trying to hold the wheel in front of you.

    I just got a set of these and they're epic, even better than the ritchey streem:

    https://www.merlincycles.com/en-us/3...20-109169.html

    I put them on my gravel bike so I'm slightly scared. But now I kinda want to ditch my streems and get these for my road bike because the drops are FAT
