Today i finally got round to fitting my new Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio Flow saddle :D

Because it contains almost nil padding compared to my old saddle I have had to raise my seat-post by around 3 cm. Upon doing this I have noticed these scratches.


Not too happy beacuase at best it ruins the whole look now :wink: at worst i may have to replace the damn thing :x

    Thin smear of clear nail varnish?

    Looks just like a mark from the clamp. Unless there is an obvious cut into the material I wouldn't worry.

    Move the light bracket down? Hey presto the scratches are covered and forgotten about!

    I wrap a turn of insulation tape around my seatpost - that way I can tell at a glance if its slipped, and when I reassemble the bike after flying - its easy to set the saddle height.

    Do that and it will cover the seatpost scratch. Easy.
