ok so im gonna take the plunge and upgrade my bike and i really want a charge spoon saddle after riding on one and hearing so many good things :D but i have a problem! what colour?!? :?

its going to go on a on-one 456 in blue and it will have a black raceface post.

i was thinking black or brown. white would be sweet but I haven't got any other white components :?

    probably cromo or is an extra £12.50 worth it for the Ti?

    I think it probably is, not so much for the weight difference but the ti rails on the knife seem to help comfort, it has a nice bit of give in it. Not that the standard Spoon's not comfy but if I get another Spoon, it'll be the ti one.

    I have a white Knife and a black Spoon, the Knife's stayed pretty clean but it does show damage very badly, even a small rub ends up looking pretty bad, whereas the dark colour ones don't show it as much. The brown is really, really nice if your bike can carry it off, too.

    Oh, just to complicate matters, Gusset sell the exact same saddle but with more colour options. And they're AWESOME :twisted:

    yer i sorta want the brown its just whether not the bike can pull it off... if it can its an instant winner :D im hoping with black components and black revelation fork the brown will suit :?

    Black goes with anything, on the other hand. Whereas the fake fur goes with nothing, and so will suit your next bike as well as your current one, and won't clash with your forks etc any worse than it would with any other colour of forks :lol:

    oh stuff it! i only live once! im going for Ti and they only come in white and brown so i guess brown it is! :D

    white would be great if i had white forks but i have 2010 rockshox revelations in black :? ill get brown unless someone persuades me otherwise

    A £20 saddle constitutes a plunge?

    The tartan design above is fantastic.

    Has anyone ridden one of the 'leopard-skin' Gusset R-series saddles... the R-Series and Spoon saddles sound great, and this spotty version has gotta put a smile on people faces. ... more than just bikes.

    I've got the ti in white and blue, bought from Wiggle just recently.

    Really comfy and pretty :)

    Ive got the white on my bike, looks the dogs with my forks and grips just enough of a highlight to offset the red.

    I have a brown Spoon on my bike and think that it creates a subtle but classy look.

    I've just got a grey spoon saddle on my blue 456, and it goes well with my now grey, once white grips. The white runners go with the white slim jims too. Must add, its a great seat once you got it set right. ... t=12613038
    Anyway, fk dis, I iz off 4 a ride innit. l8rz peepz

    I've got a brown spoon on my bike, looks good enough!

    I bought the wiggle colour scheme, black with orange underside and orange stitching. I think I might be the only person in the world that didn't get on with it though. Gone back to the WTB that came with my bike!

    i've got a brown spoon on my blue kona and it looks sweet 8) could really do with some brown grips to go with it but i love the peatys i've got and they don't come in brown.
