    Saddles - what's the new WTB Devo?

    I think they've stopped making the Devo. Has anyone who likes that saddle found a similar alternative? I've tried the Deva and it just adds gel, which doesn't work.

    Need something firm on which to rest my buttoned and a short nose. Silverado is close but nose is too long.

    Try a Specialized Henge. They shortened the length slightly this year. I have both. At first I was not that impressed with the Henge, after a month or so it is now my favorite saddle.

    When I emailed WTB with my displeasure about them discontinuing the Devo, they responded that there was such an uproar that they were bringing it back...but it would take them until the August timeframe.

    Hmm, not a whole lot of places selling the Henge (with stock) either. Others?

    I've been a devo user for a few years. I liked it but over longer rides it was a bit firm. I recently got a Chromag TrailMaster DT and rode 30 miles on it the first time I used it and had no problems whatsoever. I don't think I'm a Devo user any longer.
