    I have a WTB Volt Team Narrow Width (or maybe it's a Pro- came off a 2014 Santa Cruz Bronson) in Excellent / like new condition.

    I would like the same saddle in Medium width or a Specilaized Avatar Gel in 143mm width in similar condition.
    Bicycles don't have motors.

    Great thread idea.

    I'm always on the lookout for WTB Vigo saddles. Don't care if they're used as long as they have no rips or tears -- basically as long as they have some life left in them.

    Have one? Please hit me at mike.curiak@gmail.com. Thanks.

    Have: SDG Duster P MTN saddle with Ti rails. It's pretty new but there is a scuff on one side where I took a spill. It's cosmetic and does not effect where you make contact with the saddle.

    Want: MTN saddle of similar quality, steel rails are fine. Interested in Fizik, Ergon, SQ Labs, ISM, SDG, maybe others...

    Full Sus 29er (Yuck)

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    I like slightly wider than the bontrager seat that came on my fuel ex 8. The other seat is a very comfy wal mart Bell seat that I really like, but recently replaced with a Phenom. I'd like to get another wider seat.

    Really would like another bontrager seat, but wider. I'd love a specialized henge too.

    I have an S-Works Phenom 155 as well as a Phenom Pro in 155 if someone else has another wide saddle of similar quality. Email to phillip schroder aaaaaaaat iCloud or pm me here. Iím open to all sorts of saddle trade, my current Spesh Power Arc Pro elaston does the job but Iím not 100% convinced a saddle has chosen me yet!

    Saddle has some scuffs but no tears in the leather. Many more years of use left in this one. This is the titanium version, so if you are a weight weenie, this is the one you need.

    The new reissue of this saddle retails for $150.00. You can own this ORIGINAL 90's issue for the right trade

    29er tires?
