Totally agree, owning a bike is very dangerous to the wallet. :)
I now have 4 Berk saddles, 3 Berk top caps, Berk post and cages, with more to come.
Wish I had never heard of him. Lol :)


You can only ride one at a time! Be a good chap and I'll see if the ride is the same over West :mrgreen:

KCookie,

What saddle/s were you running prior to Berk?

I've always had Berk saddles, just changed from Lupina carbon to padded, and now a List padded on my Urgestalt. Still get a little pain, but I really don't ride as much as I would like. Either bad weather or busy, which is why I went and bought a Wahoo Kickr, hopefully the extra hours will help, or I'll have to start looking for another brand.

Thank you Jure!

I did a quick 1-hour test fitment test on the rollers today, and it's a treat of a saddle. Tomorrow I'll see how 60 miles (100km) feels.

The head of the rear bolt on the second pic above, is not supported on the whole it's circumference, in fact, judging by the photo there is very limited contact point between the head and seatpost. It doesn't look good.

I've actually taken the post of the bike, just seemed to be so much movement/flex with the saddle, also looks like the post has cracked around the seat collar area, even though set to the right NM. Just about to sent a pic to Jure.

Hi to all! Thanks for the nice comments!
For the seatpost, I guess I just saw your post before you managed to write an email, if there is anything wrong please just let me know and we'll send a replacement asap. By the fit of the bolt on the rear it really seems that something is not ok. Thanks!2
