    Avocet seat questions...Rumpfy????

    Does anyone have any kind of timeline on Avocet seats? Like the Touring, Touring II, Touring III, Racing etc. And were they originally all Leather covered? When did the Vinyl covered ones start? thanx guys..


    I thought Rumpfy might know, as obsessed with seats as he seems to be

    Thats saddle height...and only when it's reeeeally where it shouldn't be.

    (Like in your case, when the nose of the saddle is resting on the top tube )

    you should not trust a man w/no vices.

    the best way to get rid of temptation is to yield..

    i can resist everything except temptation.

    Speaking of Avocet

    Whatever happened to them? They still have a website up but don't seem to have put any new models out for at least 5 years and I don't see them in stores anymore. I really liked their O2 Air and AMP-D XC titanium saddles.
