Thanks, thats roughly 5.84lbs. Now I know where I'm headed.

How do you like the Tune SpeedNeedle saddle? It looks really short(my kind of saddle). Any ideas where I could get my hands on a Needle Marathon in the USA? Anyone?

About the speedneedle:
Its a great saddle, fits very good, and pretty comfy too!
also light!

i don't know where you can buy it in the states.
