decides to get something a little lighter then a berk this time.
Does this saddle only actually weigh 68gr and are there any rider weight limits on that?
Try as I might, I haven't been able to find a weight limit listed for this saddle. I was interested in ordering one, but I'm reluctant to order one (especially given the price).
in the FAQ section on the product page someone asked about a rider weight limit and the verified bontrager response was "no rider weight limit" however it is not recommened for mountain biking.

see the last FAQ at the bottom of this link

That saddle would have done an emergency c-section on me any number of times in my mountain biking career. Saddle is the wrong place to save weight on an MTB.

Thanks its amazing to see there are no weight limits to this very lightweight saddle. Must be some good engineering that has gone into this seat.

Today, I finally ordered this beauty! Wanted to buy it for at least a month, and today was the day I got to pull the trigger! Here's to hoping of having it delivered soon and riding it by mid March!!!! :D

Titaniumplanet CF/Ti SPD cleats washers and bolts, Ti/CF Shimano road lever clamp bolt/washer, a bunch of CF washers to replace steel ones, a pair of hollow Ti bolts to screw flat mount caliper with. And for my MTB: a McLeod shock instead of Radium DC, and a Rocket Ron Lighskin which I'll attempt to mount tubeless.

I've had one fail... rubber seal in the cartridge area.. the seal twisted and is half way out but still worked. I decided to bin it, because one of these day...it's not gonna work.

i hear you. I wouldn't take the chance on the road. My shiny object still works and has been good so far. if they can only solve the seal portion. I do like the size of the tiny one.

Had two different inflators seals go on me mid pump recently.. Gives the ears a hell of a ringing.

Both got replaced under rma.
