WD40 is the business when stripping gloop off stripped saddles or the annoying warning labels that come on some bikes.

for warning labels, try warming them with a hairdryer first - this results in very little or no glue left behind at all. I should know; I counted 15 labels on my S-Works warning me of DEATH, or at the very least maiming!! Made me smile. :lol:

It's a 130 mm (and a keeper), but seeing this thread, I'm seriously considering getting a Toupe Pro saddle.

A little update after spending 4.5 hrs in the saddle yesterday:

-Definitely more comfortable to me now that it was with padding
-Quite comfortable up to ~3 hrs
-Really not so comfortable for the time after :mrgreen:

This thread makes me wonder if it's the padding that eventually starts to sag and not so much the shell.
