    Love, a second time around!

    I put a modern saddle on my favorite VRC rider, and I think I fell in love again. I like the looks. And besides that, I took it for a spin around the block, and the saddle makes the bike a joy to ride. Support, stability and comfort. Goodbye Selle Italia!

    It's a WTB Valcon Team. I have 3 of them and they fit me well.

    I'm the opposite. There isn't a saddle out there made in the last 15 or so years that I can sit on.

    If you have a vintage butt you should take this to the VRC section of buttreview.com!

    I'm with Shayne which is all my bikes have the 1990 Selle Flite on it. Some are original, some are the modern repro.
    Looking for: Really nice set of black M730 cranks

    Nice setup! I love the vintage stuff. My '94 Cannondale was rusting away so I gave it an overhaul. Now I have more fun on it than my Santa Cruz Highball!

    I am with you. Everything from my 1995 Yokota Yosemite to my 2015 Salsa Bucksaw has a Flite Titanium. The only exception is my 2014 Kona Jake the Snake because I actually like the WTB it came with. I have a spare Flite to replace it though.
    Flotilla or Buffet.

    I am going to have to 3rd/4th that. So glad that they started making the model again.
