First ride with it today. Just an hour, but I hit some good cracks in the road with keeping my full weight on the saddle. I usually take my ass off the seat when I hit a bump since I have carbon rails on my Zoncolan saddle, but I wanted to see what kind of impact it would take. Everything is fine. I will carry my original cradle in my seat bag with my tools for a while, but I don't foresee a problem. If anything, the narrower bearing distance of the cradle will put more stress on the saddle rails. I would think carbon rails would fail before this cradle would fail.
I will continue with the testing though!
Weight saving is 14 grams according to my scale. Quite happy about that!
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?
