    Attn Creaky: Your saddle is ready

    Please retreive at your convenience.

    PS - Andrea, the cutout on your saddle is giving me fits. I apologize for the delay.

    That is the most phallic looking saddle I've ever seen.

    If you want to try something kinda trick- like maybe not cutting a hole for the cutout, but leaving a "generous" indentation there- that could probably work.

    The only way to get the cutout done correctly appears to be to cut the cover into sections and sew it together. I'm gonna try and figure out that. If I can't I'll go the "generous indentation" route and see where that takes me.

    I'm hoping you are not needing this one anytime soon.


    PS - Do you have a pic of the other one I did that you can send along? I need some more "Customer Saddles" for the forthcoming website. I can't seem to find any that I took.

    That's a great idea.
    I might even ride a saddle like that, as long as other people didn't know that I was riding a saddle with a hole in it.

    Thought #2. Back in the day, saddles often were covered with perforated leather. What if the saddle leather was only perforated where the hole was?

    Oops, I thing I just gave away my great idea, for free.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    One monkey dies for everytime one of those saddles is purchased.

    Have you no shame people? Don't you care about our world?

    I think the perf's are a good idea. Better than the indentation. I'm worrying about the indentation not laying flat and/or moving around and there being wrinkles in the cover near your taint. And that is most definitely not where you want anything that could chafe.

    Now I gotta figure out how to get the perfs evenly spaced and looking good, but making sure they don't introduce a weak spot that could cause a rip. And how to cut and sew a cover for a saddle with a cutout.

    PS - That is not leather.

    I was going to experiment in recovering a cutout saddle by pulling the wet leather through the opening, clamping it with a pony clamp, then wet wrapping and clamping the rest.

    I've tried that. It's easy enough to get the material to stretch through enough to anchor it. The problem is getting it to lay flat without bunching or wrinkling. I think I've got it figured out using the cut-and-sew method, but now I gotta go learn to use a sewing machine.

    Coop, if you want to talk saddle wrapping techniques, feel free to shoot me an email or PM. I've done several at this point but could always use some more input.


    (wowzers, this thread is FULL of k()d3)


    And if anyone else has a beater saddle they want worked on, I need a few more. If you can get it to me, I'll recover it for free and send it back.

    I remember those old 'lift and separate' Avocet saddles from days gone by. Not to everyone's liking as I recall.
