    They are £200 new so I don't think that's a bad price.

    I had the non carbon rail version & it looked the business but unfortunately my backside thought otherwise.

    GLWTS though.

    It's their flagship model, £200 new and it is unused.
  • MattFalleMattFalle Posts: 5,500
    I've just bought a mint condition carbon railed one for £40

    but hey, if someone will pay that.

    its not exactly a superlight saddle though at 140g

    Whats your problem dude? You've basically jumped on this thread to tell me and everyone else not to buy the saddle? Slating it and saying its overpriced. I'd appreciate it if you stopped.
  • MattFalleMattFalle Posts: 5,500
    so no one can discuss anything no?

    i never said don't buy it, i just said that i felt it was massively overpriced. ibr127654rr said he felt the price was the fine.

    its all market economics.

    Or you could just keep your opinions to yourself especially if they are negative.

    Dude. Just leave, you've obviously woke up on the wrong side of the bed thismorning.
  • MattFalleMattFalle Posts: 5,500
    not much chance of that saddle leaving at that price, dude.

    knock £70 off and you may get a bite.

    You won't stop will you? I tried it at a local dealers, bought it for £200, why would I now sell for £50????
  • MattFalleMattFalle Posts: 5,500
    Because its not worth £125 and £50 is better than a poke in the eye.

    if its never been used why don't you just return it?

    Because they will only give me store credit and I wanted cash. You are like a dog with a bone!

    £200 of store credit sounds better than £50, hassle of posting, fuming about losing £150, etc.

    I'd prefer to keep it than loose out on £150. I'm in no rush to sell so I'll wait on my price.

    Its gonna be a long wait......

    'DELETE' as the headline says you're not willing to wait...

    Take it back and buy something with the credit you can easily sell, like a new chainset.
    You could be staring at the saddle a long time.

    MF is out of order here IMO.

    Whatever the OP wants for it is up to him, not for anyone else to comment especially if they are putting folk off.
  • MattFalleMattFalle Posts: 5,500
    Negatron IBR - all we did was discuss price, like you would in a pub.

    no one is putting anyone off - the first thing you are obviously going to do is Google how much something is new: you did on this saddle.

    All MF did was suggest he lower his price so that he'll actually sell the thing not just be stuck with it.

    I don't believe you meant to put folk off but by "discussing" the price you will IMO.

    negatron my dear friend.

    if they are interested in the saddle they will look at prices for the same on the 'bay, wiggle, etc and then make an informed decisons.

    no one is going to pay full retail for it or nigh on for a used saddle.

    if they want it they'll bung him an offer by pm.

    discussion about prices does not negate purchase decisions - how many times have we sat here and gone "how much!!!!" and someone has still spaffed £10k on a plastic Specialised with a Japanese groupset.

    Discussion is healthy, sycophancy and blind obeduence is not.
