I bought a new Selle Italia SLR Monolink saddle, best saddle I've ever ridden.

However, after riding it half a dozen times, I noticed it getting bouncier and bouncier, then finally this happened - it's carbon undershell has completely cracked through! I'm not too fat (78kg), just short commutes on city streets.

Is this is known problem with these saddles?

Neither Selle Italia or ZryoFisher the UK distributor can support me, because I used eBay. Hard lesson learnt.

Had one replaced under warranty......saddle rails snapped after hitting a pothole......

Still running the system but very dubious.....
