I try to find a company working with repairing and/ or modifying saddles.
Such as padding and cover.
I have no success at all, sadly!
I would like to ask you guys, do you know of anyone working with this?
I might add that it's best if the company is located in EU.

Thanks!

I have some seriously cool stuff here i would like to use.
It's an impact proof gel. It is awesome to sit on. Vibrations is totally voided.
I would probably need to order a new sheet of this for a mod.
That is really what i would like to have done. The surface looks, bling, is less relevant.
I just need to find someone who does the work.
Yupp, mailed Jure and the above suggestion.

My mate just did the saddle and other leather bits for the Colnago 87.
No idea if he ever did the custom padding part.

I have covered 2 saddlea myself with leather and foam. It is pretty simple. Tonnes of online tutes. Just need contact cement, i found using a stitch to pull both sides of the leather together at the nose made it much neater.

It seems to be a bit of a trouble to find someone actually working with this. I'll see what price indication Berk come up with.
It's a pity, it would be so cool if i could have tools and material to test this out myself.
I have come to be picky about the shape of the hull of saddles. I don't like raised tails at all.
Almost all saddles have it to some degree.
Or they are curved (a dip between nose and tail).

I still appreciate all tips i can get. So if you find something out, please post it are you nice!
