ophiravina, thanks for the pictures. Based on your info, I have ordered this saddle for my bike.

It looks like an inexpensive way to see if a full CF saddle is for me.

....My seatpost is Specailized Pave with Zertz inserts. 220gr it is, uncut.....

ToffieBoi, I took out the Zertz insert on mine (16 grams)(it's not structural).

I then cut mine down. To pick the length to cut, I:
- measured from bottom, to minimum insertion mark (90 mm)
- I measured 110mm (a little added for safety/adjustment) down from where I actually inset the post

Total weigh savings = 34 grams, with no money spent, and no change in comfort/safety/appearance.


Sounds good. I will try to do it.
Also, I found something interesting on ebay.
One of the sellers, was selling "titanium axle for lollipop shaped pedals". I guess they can't say Speedplay, so they are selling like that.
Seller also claims that it is 54gr lighter than my own, cro-moly pedals. For $50 also, it sounds cool to me.

I have a set, they work just fine.

Off topic....

ophiravina.....

I can see why a light bike matters to you.

Take a look at those garage doors. I've never seen anything like that. Hilly where you live?!

hilly is good, I have a lot of chalanges to achieve on strava :wink:

I wanted to come back to the thread to give you an update... I received the saddle 11 days after the order (to New York).

It does have 7x9 rails. I have it installed, and will be riding it later (indoors, rollers).
