Thanks to all!

@pitbull
Yes, also a CNC, so that the moulds could be sooner..and also autoclave is a very expensive piece of equipment. Unfortunately I already missed some projects because we don't have an autoclave (for motosport industry)

And most important, because a special process we repair/replace the spoke under the right tension, so that after the repair the wheel is also true (!!!)


Jure,

I owe you an email back but haven't been home to snap a pic. Plan on sending you another CCU to repair with damage at the spoke/rim interface. I'd be interested to see the process of fixing it!

Hi,
no problem take your time. As you can imagine the process is quite complicated and it took me quite a lot of time to calculate all the tensions etc., but it is possible. Unfortunately I'll keep it secret

Hi Jure,

I am sure you have mentioned somewhere, but are the saddle rails round or oval?

I would love to install one of your saddles on my cyclocross bike, can you recommend using your saddle on a CX bike? I would buy the strengthened version although I am within the weight limit of the standard saddle (78kg).

Thanks! ;)

Hi,
sorry for my late answer!

The saddle rails are completely round, fi 7mm.

Depends from how you ride - in most cases there is no need to have extra reinforcements, only if you really ride very agressive (for example if you are "jumping" on the saddle a lot and with full weight etc.).

Otherwise here is one more saddle, this time with 3mm padding + leather cover:

Another saddle that is a bit different, no clearcoat at all, just raw carbon and leather:
