    SLR Saddle

    The leather in the nose of my slr is torn and starting to damage my short. I've seen a post previously of SLR without its padding and leather. is it slippery/painful? thanks

    Nino/Knut/Max... can you enlighten me on this one. thanks

    SLR 135 shaved.

    One guy in PL had same problem and shaved his SLR. He didn't felt discomfort.

    You propably do not know Polish so...
    It took him 2-3h to do this. Leather isn't a problem, there is a tape on the saddle which takes most of the time. Saddle was polished at the end.

    can understand anything from that site but gives me the idea. that saddle looks slippery and painful. did he sanded it to make it more flexible or simple polish after removing the leather and the glue. thanks.

    Owner like hard saddles. Still there is info that it can't be ridden without bikeshorts.
    There is no word about slippery. So its not the issue.
    Saddle wasn't sanded, only polished after all work.

    My SLR165g holds up so far

    Its more that when you spend nearly $100 on a saddle, its nice to keep it going as long as possible. A new SLR is not really minimalist, its a very comfortable saddle. It also happens to be light, which is always good. I can ride for hours on one and there are people who do 24 hr races on them.
    If you want to play with electricity, more power to ya......

    i agree with DaFireMedic, i love the saddle when i was covered with leather and still loving loving it without. I believe saddle is bit more personnal thing, i mean some may find the slr comfy and some may not as i am not comfy with wide saddle. i started this thread trying to get more life out of my saddle and i did by removing the damaged leather cover and padding. the leather and the padding is very thin and it almost feel the same without it. if your riding with lycra and padded cycling short. comfort will not be an issue.
