This saddle is of wonderful leather. The hardware is top notch. The construction is beautiful. Best of all is the ride. I have Velo saddles on two of my bikes. Love em!
None I can think of.
It really looks good! The chrome springs and rails are perfect. It's not a plain brown, it's a reddish brown, it really has a vintage look right out of the box. I'm 200 lbs and the springs just barely compress when I'm sitting on it. It Doesn't wiggle around when I'm peddling, the springs only work on big bumps, it's not like riding a pogo stick. :-)
The rails are very long, lots of front to back adjustment. It comes in a nice felt bag and a little wrench to adjust the leather tension - a long time from now.
It's a hard as a rock! The 1st 2 days I was having second thoughts, I've been using another well known leather saddle conditioner, because I already own it, and after a couple of weeks and 50-60 miles it's actually starting to feel OK. I think after a couple of hundred miles this will break in and be a comfy saddle.
Based on other peoples reviews about the nuts on the springs coming off, I took mine all apart and add some blue locktite to all the nuts. No problems.
