    They don't look too bad. We got one into the shop I work at and its better (ie. leatherlike) than most.

    On eBay a few months ago I bought a titanium-rail San Marco Rolls saddle for my Tesch, and although I assume it's a rebop, it seems fine. It's certainly close enough for me.

    The Tesch is my only bike that doesn't have fat tires. I really should ride it more. I've almost forgotten what road rash and stitches feel like.

    good 'nuff

    well, got some of these a few weeks ago. about 6mm wider than my old perforated leather ones (the packaging is now marked 'unisex'). i guess they're ok, beats paying nos ebay prices......

    Your Tesch is Awesome!

    It's kinda weird that they'd reissue these in cheap pleather. Seems like exactly the kind of thing that would turn off the target customers. (then again, Specialized reissued the Stumpjumper with hollowtech XT cranks, so maybe they're just following a trend )
