I bought Tioga Spyder Twintail 2013 on eBay
Price: $51 (free shipping)
From: China, but that doesn't really matter
This seat was flexing a lot.
I am just 70 Kg (154 lbs), but just by sitting on it, the seat was almost touching the seat bolt.
This was comfortable, but my sitbones were holding most of weight (kind of like Romin).
The nose was hard and overall pretty narrow.
I wasn't happy so I sold it, and this is the interesting part:
The guy sent this seat back to me and said that he already has a 1 year used Tioga Spyder, but that it doesn't flex near half of what this one does
He said the seats are visually identical.
So, I contacted seller and he said the seat was bought 100% real and authentic, but that I can send it back.
> Which is great, but I already paid $25 for taxes and now would pay +$20 to send it back.
I am pretty convinced the seat is fake, because I weighed 173g (official is 135g)!!
I also contacted Tioga and even they couldn't confirm whether it's fake just by looking at photos, but that the weight is not right and that they are finding many counterfeit Tioga Spyder in the market.
Life's too short to smile for reason.
