    Never tried Cardiff. The other more standard saddle that works for me is a selle san marco regal. I use one of the old ti ones on my MTB. Worst idea ever was to try a fizik aliante on a double century. Felt like clouds for the first hour then became an increasing pain in a$$

    Yea I heard that the Brooks saddles are being manufactured in CHINA. I've had mine maybe 15 years now and all that needs to be done it to oild the saddle top and bottom twice a year.

    Oh man those "cork" Berthoud saddles look great.

    I guess next we need to start a Cycling thread before we completely hijack and piss off the lazy polluters.

    Yeah, we probably should start another thread, although I drive too ;-).

    And yes, the berthoud are fantastic. Some retro-grouches grumble over the plastic frame parts, but I have found them to make zero difference. Not sure how the cork holds up, but my black one did fade some over time.

    If they have it's a very recent development.

    This episode of How It's Made was done not too long ago.



    Wouldn't be a bit surprised if many components, like the springs and such, are made in the far east.

    1997 Jeep Wrangler, "heater and a key" model...no carpet, no AC, no stereo, no backseat...my very favorite vehicle ever.

    2006 Jeep Commander...really the wife's car...meh.

    2008 Mazda MX-5 Crusing Edition....can't believe how much I love driving this thing...I don't even like cars but this thing puts a smile on my face every time I get in it.

    2008.5 Nissan Titan. never thought I'd own a truck, much less like it...this think rides like a car and is full of ammenities...plus it can pull my 5-ton RV
