This probably doesn’t necessitate a long post, but, the last time I went out riding at Theo Wirth I took a (dumb) spill and my saddle popped right off the rails. Don’t ask.
I was foolish enough to think I could reattach it. A couple of weekends ago I went out to ride Murphy-Hanrehan and made a quick pit stop into Tonka Cycle & Ski to get their expert opinion, because theirs is an opinion I trust. Not only did they tell me it was near impossible to get it back on, but they sold me on upgrading to a new saddle. I walked out of there with the WTB Laser V. My tuchus has never been happier. It has more cushion than the Silverado Pro I was riding but it’s lighter. Titanium vs. Ni-Cro tends to do that. Not only was it lighter and more cushioned, I felt I could transition off and on more smoothly.
Solid recommendation for Tonka Cycle. If you’ve never been there, I encourage you to go. Their good local people with good advice.
