Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Other Thoughts

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.

Width

Men's saddles tend to have a narrower seat and longer nose than corresponding women's versions.

We categorize usage into three styles - BMX, racing and recreation. Racing saddles tend to be narrower and be more firm than recreation saddles. Recreation saddles are usually a better fit if you plan to ride upright and they may include features like springs.

Saddle color is usually the predominant color of the saddle. But, for predominantly black or white saddles it is usually the color of accents or highlights.
