best seat I've tried to date.. and 148mm @ 140g is pretty good too. My sit bones don't like those 130mm seats after 40-50 miles.. had to say goodbye to my SLR Tekno flow.

Two pairs of these. Reduces cleat wear to almost nothing, and prevents dust and sand from being trapped and rubbing on the pedal body. Without it Speedplay really sucks.

Awesome. I love the minimal aesthetics and that they're made right here in NYC.

I think I might have to replace my super light Saevid saddle, it's killing me. Looking for something light but comfortable. This looks interesting. How did you figure out the correct width for yourself?

You can measure your seatbones by sitting on blueprint paper.

Those Search and State garments sure look nice. They remind me of the good old prada sport when it used to be high quality apparel (which is no longer the case, but that's another story).

You can just get measured... but I was buying seats off ebay and just trying. I was getting them cheap enough that I could resale with little to no loss, so why not. Another comfy seat that I could be happy with is the 142mm Fizik Antares00 and it's only 135g with no cutout. Never been measured but anything from 142-148 is comfy for me. I've done a couple hours on a trainer with non-padded shorts w/no issues.

Funny pic to the other guy... my arse is not that big.... My wife would have a fit if I looked that that skinny dude

Fantastic!!
This is the kind of cycling clothing I like.
I don't like all thos bling bling jerseys with all kind of stripes, logos and swooshes in all possible colors and I also don't like the merino wool retro stuff.

Please tell us something about the sizing and fit and also the quality of the padding.
