Thanks for that, I`ll keep it as it is.
I used to own a 1980's Condor that had an Avocet saddle .... I found it very comfortable especially on long rides ..... they are quality saddles
if you find it uncomfortable, change it, but keep it for when you one day decide to sell the bike
you can get newer Holdsworth saddles aswell: (they have black ones):
I`v not had the chance to set up the saddle to my liking just yet. I like my saddles tilted slightly upwards towards the bars - like this on my hybrid -
I know the saddle will be fine if its set up like this, as I do it on all of my bikes and have no problems at all with comfort.
I was looking at the Px saddles the other day, but I think I`d just be paying out £30 for the badge
Many thanks for the reply @dim
The 'retro' 7.99 PX saddles are comfortable and surprisingly good value. They appear to be identical to the Chinese saddles available for around a fiver. I've got one on my early 90s Peugeot 525, and it looks 'in period'.
My re-born Charge Juicer, awaiting final tweaking and a test ride before the bar tape goes on. The masking tape on the fork is to check if the 32mm tyre is rubbing on the fork when riding. It *just* works in the workshop, but I wonder if when I'm on board it may deflect too much:
Picked this old Galaxy up cheap for my European touring trips rather than chance a good bike on the plane. Turns out this is a good bike. Now what!
Had this since 1987 it's ageing gracefully just like me
Go touring on it or buy a cheap bike, oh hold on
Converted my Condor Fratello to 1x11. S
Hi to you all out there. Having shown you my totally refurbished Benotto Modelo 850 on the 27th September 2016 I can now reveal my other steed - my recently finished and equally refurbished Steve Goff frame which like my Benotto is also of Columbus tubing albeit of three different grades - hence the Designer Select on the front end of the top-tube.
The frame was totally stripped and re-stove enameled in a very nice Flamboyant Blue and fitted with new Chromed forks.
I for one love it!
Hi Dh. Nice paint job and the criss - cross finish on the decals is quite 'eye catching'.
There is some thing really nice about the use of Chromed Forks and stays - albeit my two machines only have the Chromed Forks.
This is my latest build, it's a bit of a rarity, a Dave Lloyd Quantum 650 from 1996.
I still have some work to do, but it's getting there.
