I'm totaly shocked to say that after my first true ride tonight my all new tioga spyder seat is infact quite comfy. Yet it looks like it should cut you in two. Nice.

    I know what you mean a big squashy seat looks like it should be comfy but soon turns in to a torture instrument I always reckon a good saddle should feel a tiny bit uncomfortable to start with but never get any worse my personal favourite SDG bel air :)

    I see what you mean,that does not look comfy at all,but it must flex a bit so I can see how it could be !

    I bet it weighs next to nothing too !!

    should be 140grams but my scales say 160g.... :( and yes it bends in the middle so that must help
