Thanks to all, I'm glad that you like the design!
There really isn't anything to complain about them
but I do have a girlfriend already a few years, and she's also very pretty
. So if anyone is looking for some nice girls, come to Slovenia, we also have great countryside for cycling
Back to the saddle, I already made the first test ride. And I see that there is still some place to loose weight and improve comfort even a bit more! The saddle shell could be less stiff, at least for my weight I think that it could be even lighter / less reinforced saddle shell. So I'll make a new prototype with a different saddle shell layup...so I may even hit <60g!
Here just some more photos, the saddle rails that I bonded to the saddle are more or less completely rough, but I let that finish as long as it's only a prototype...as you can see it's only glued to the saddle shell, so no need to make "step 3" (additional carbon reinforcements)
Saddle shell finish and saddle rails:
On the bike:
The saddle rails are completely round, so no need for any specific clamping mechanism (like for example Fizik or Selle Italia carbon saddles). Don't see any good reason why it shouldn't be made completely round, so I made the rails completely round, and it can be used with any seatpost.
Complete bike 6,4kg as on the photo (with Garmin etc.)
Could drop some more weight with lighter bottle cages, carbon handlebar, etc.,..but I just love it like it is. Maybe I should remove the stickers from the wheelset? Well, I'll see...I have those wheels for my everyday use.
One more photo of the saddle alone, pure matte look:
