    I want pictures of the surgeons stuffing bits back in when the thing collapses underneath you. These things are generally manufactured to tolerances, weight and stress (& deformation), so if you want a cutout saddle it's generally considered a good idea to buy one. I truly hope you DON'T find out your idea was a really bad one.

    ..yes, I can't help thinking you bought the wrong saddle there.

    Have you tried retro? (Brooks:o)

    oh for god's sake yenners.
    Still I empathise with your enthusiasm for making things and improvising.
    I often do myself, but it often fails.

    Is that how you lost your tackle when you tried to make your own girlfriend out of an empty washing up bottle, a roll of sticky back plastic and a pound of fresh liver?

    It's not April the first is it ?

    1. They look awful
    2. These saddles were not designed to have big parts of them cut away - the stress on the rails will cause a failure
    3. Try explaining that at A&E - the Nurses will have a right laugh !
    4. Depends upon if you ever want to be a father - it looks like a cheap form of the snip to me, but far more painful......

    I'd really advise against DIY stuff like that as there are a hell of a lot of stresses going through a bike, and if it's not up to specification, it will break - seat post up my ass is not what I'd call fun ........

    I'd consider a 'normal' saddle - more likely to render you impotent due to the fact of the penis what you cannot see inside the scrotum turning at an angle, thus some men becoming impotent due to this pressuring the vein/s that supply the penis....

    Get some education...

    Get a life....

    Didn't affect Mr Boardman, nor me.......(i.e have kids no problemo...) Your saddles might permanently disable you !

    You'll have to update us on how it goes (i mean that seriously). I can see why it might be comfier, assuming those edges aren't sharp, but wonder if it might begin to spread with time. I'm not sure I see it failing as catastrophically as some people make out, but the rails might bend without the intact saddle hull to hold them together. I could be wrong, but I salute your courage sir! :biggrin:
