I purchased this LOOK about 13-14yrs ago. We shared many yrs of blood, sweat, tears of pain and joy together. But she is now retired to light winter use.

If any of you old timers can figure out her designation (KG585,586,171,blah,blah...), I will give you a juicy virtual kiss as a prize.

Don't get too close to the cage...

Nicer than my winter bike, that's for sure. No idea on the designation...

I just noticed that you have both an Aspide and a Arione. I was just curious what you think about them relative to each other. I need a new saddle and am deliberating between those two. I know one might work better for you than for me, but just wanted your opinion.

@ holycao86...
I find both to be comfy in rides under 100 miles. On rides over 100 miles I prefer the Arione slightly over the Aspide. The reasons for this...
1) Arione is slightly wider in the nose than Aspide, I like my prostate smashed evenly over a larger surface area. The Aspide isn't bad, just puts a tiny bit more pressure on my junk. A narrow nose is the main downfall of the Aspide to me. When I climb in the saddle I tend to slide back on the seat and sqeeze out the pedal strokes with my glutes (ass muscles). As a result I can feel the rails (that stick out slightly near the front) on the Aspide.
2) Arione has slightly thicker padding in the nose. The chassis is firm but the padding gives just enough for being as dense as it is.
On the Aspide there is less padding, BUT the chassis is flexy so it gives under your weight (absorbing shock) making it very comfy still.
3) Arione is a long saddle. I like to move around a lot when I ride long distance. There isn't enough real estate to do the same on the Aspide.

I really like both saddles, but the Arione wins out by just a little for it's flexibility in positions and comfort over really long rides. for example, I won't even feel the Arione after 200 miles but with the Aspide there is a tiny bit of pressure on the perineum. Only negative trait of the Arione is the weight.

I hope that helps a little. I actually went to a used bike shop a few blocks away and test rode both of them before buying because everyone's butt crack is different.

Now off my crack and back to my weenie! Just added this to my bike...

Now the Bianchi is down from 16.2lbs to 15.8lbs (with all the other stuff highlighted in red from page 1). Yeah!

Oh well.. you look allright on the bike. But when you just look at the bike it looks as tho you might be lying down on it rather then sitting. :lol:

How it cracked? Oh well.. i dunno. It's a mistery really. I have fallen off of the bike bike a couple of time in races, but only on my right side for some reason and the crack was on the left side of the bike. The crack went from the head tube down the down tube. It made the bike totally unstable and it flexed like hell. I dunno how the crack develpoed tho, like i said i never fell on that side but maybe the force of a certain crash made it crack..

Is that a KG 131? It looks like the KG96 my friend has, but the headtube lugs and fork are different...

You are correct MaestroXC! I thought no one would never get it since there's hardly any info on the web about the KG 131 (unless you owned or saw one in person).

Here is your kiss... ( O_o)^_^ )
