Help finding a new saddle

Discussion on bikes, and whatever...

Never ridden a full carbon saddle so possible unfounded concerns. But since this would be going on my road race bike - comfort? Wouldn't be cruising so not sure how something so light handle abuse either?

Just do it.
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

Another question then. Although I don't use a saddle bag racing, how would I attach one to a saddle with no rails such as the Becker when out training?

Comfort would always be a concern when using a new saddle, right?

Do you really need a saddle bag? I mostly use one if it rains. :D Otherwise I keep all the essentials in a plastic bag I can slip into a back pocket regardless of which bike I happen to ride.

Tune KomVor has rails that you can strap a bag to. :wink:

Not necessarily, though am used to having one there with spare tube, CO2, tyre levers and repair kit. Prefer to keep my jersey pockets free for clothing, food, phone, camera etc.

If on tubs, I do strap the tyre under the seat and carry the CO2 etc in the jersey pocket. Could always get something like a BBB tools and tube bottle, but that then restricts me to one cage for water...
