Lim March 14, 2019 07:38 PM Trivial as it may sound to many, about 18% of Australians are Vegan/Vegetarian. I would NEVER buy a seat that has cost lives and that will continue to cost the lives of sentient beings. MQ March 15, 2019 03:44 AM Lim. You obviously aren't the target demographic for this "superior" product then. You may wait inline for your fossil fuel inspired synthetic version. If the choice is fossil resource depletion or a little bloodsh3d. take your pick.... CarolynFarstrider March 15, 2019 07:17 AM I wonder if the seat is just designed for men, with different shaped pelvises? KaiserPingo March 15, 2019 09:14 AM Great saddle in a wonderful leather (I've just had the seats in my Alfa Romeo re-upholstered with new amounts of beautiful leather), but the prizing is insane ! anthony88 March 15, 2019 09:23 AM Looks easily copied. How long before there's a $20 version? Douglas Bennett Rogers March 15, 2019 03:26 PM The construction is very similar to a $20 Walmart saddle. If it's as good as it looks, you should see it there in a year or two. Mik-Fielding March 15, 2019 04:59 PM Apart from being covered in leather which is off putting for many people, I was finding this quite interesting until it came to the price! They are living in cloud cuckoo land charging so much for it, it can only remain as a small scale boutique product with limited sales potential. Get rid of the leather and sell it for well under $100 and they might be on to a winner ... Jay Gatto March 17, 2019 09:46 AM Up is now down. So funny. anthony88 March 19, 2019 09:11 AM Had a painful thought about this seat while riding on the weekend: Will male riders need to wear tight shorts to stop the possibility of testicles becoming trapped in the opening or on the middle spike, potentially becoming distended or ripped off in an accident? SzMike March 19, 2019 06:10 PM anthony88, I had the same thought, this is a dangerous good.
