This Space for Rent

It is traditional

The mountainhack at Joe's Donuts

Testing out a non-leather saddle by riding it up to Sandy. The ride worked (slowly; the rear tire ate a chunk of glass about a half mile from home, so rather than attempt to change the tire there I just walked the machine home so I could change the tire inside where it’s warm) but the saddle not so much. It’s too bad the Brooks non-leather saddles have a prominent waffle pattern on them, because other than that they’re about as close as I’ve found to Berthoud saddles :-(


“prominent waffle pattern” sounds like a pre-emptive down check for a saddle surface from over here!

I’d say you get points for being willing to try it at all.
