With approx six years of wear and tear on my old Specialized Body Geometry saddle, it's good days were long gone. If you look closely you can see I had worn the leather out and was starting to work away at the plastic underside. For quite a while it hadn't been showing me any saddle love, in fact it was just plain uncomfortable. But being "frugal" I stretched it out well beyond it's replacement time.

Enter the replacement - A Fizik Arione. It's not an uber-sexy saddle if you are a weight-weenie or a carbon-geek but quite a few guys I ride with had good things to say and it's well thought of online so I figured I cinch it down on my seatpost to see how it felt.

Sweet saddle bliss. It's a keeper. The old saddle, well it's on its way to saddle heaven.
