Having just killed one old seat, another on the way out, and my only remaining seat currently NOT agreeing with my hind end, I just realized that I'm pretty much out of decent seats - so what better time than to make the switch? I'm intrigued by the I-beam system and am considering ordering up a seatpost and a seat or two. The problem is that I have yet to run into an I-beam seat in any of the local shops.
Are any of you running I-beam? How's it working for you, and what seats do you like?
Also, is SDG the only maker of I-beam seats or are there others?
locked - time out
That would work fantastic in conjuction with a gdropper.
Well Sammy Hill is back on one LOL.
I adjusted one the other day for a DH guy on a Glory, maybe his was worn out or badly adj prev, but it kept slipping on the rails after some major tightening, its whats always put me off the design, but I still dig it, JRA could have been a cause here, just can;t get rid or destroy my 10yr plus old Thomson elite I would like to try em though check this out!

Not sure I'd trust my grundle to the Ibeam. Kinda like asking for a carbon enema with an xc seatpost. Seems to be quite a few complaints about the stability/durability of the Ibeams. Worth a search.
I have used one for 3 seasons now.
The seatpost I have is not the greatest quality but it is light and the seat... well it works.
I have no slipping or clamping issues.
SDG makes about 5 saddle models. and fit is personal.
I am not easy on the seat. I used to use it on my downhill bike.
