    =1. Looks like a class machine all round.

    Just wondering, who in the marketing department for the saddle manufacturer thought "Knife" was a good name for something to sit on, I wonder??

    I know what you mean - given that they also have saddles named 'spoon', 'ladle', 'bucket' and 'stool' my guess is that they are getting their names by playing 'I-spy' in someone's kitchen... ;)

    I'll update the pic soon, as there is a Force chainset to be fitted - and an outside shot with better light would be nice...
