    I was looking on ebay for a Brooks saddle which there must of been about 40 odd all second hand a different prices.. But none had put the size of the saddle down so it seems I must contact every seller listed and ask the size of the saddle.

    Well that's pants to me.

    CarlP If it's dead, bury it, before it starts to stink.

    No offence like, but as rants go that’s a pretty poor attempt. Could do better.

    I thought the model number/name determined the size by which presumably you mean length / width?

    https://www.condorcycles.com/collections/saddles/

    Eg a B17 imperial or standard is 170cm while the narrow is 155. So you’ll need to do some research as to which size and thus model

    The Cambium C13 might come in different options so those you’d need to contact

    I never understood folk selling stuff on ebay who don't put the size of items in the title of the product they are selling, rugs/carpets are the worst, wait while I go through 50000 listings to find the right size :biggrin:

    Except the designs are different? You don’t buy a saddle purely on size otherwise why buy a Brooks and not just a cheapie from Halfords
