      A great used Kieffer that you just had re-adjusted last week, fits like a glove!

      A $250 jobbie that you picked up from a tack swap 3 years ago...it's not the saddle, it's the skill and intention of the rider that matters.

      No Saddle! I'm riding bareback all week to improve my seat (even if I have sores on my nether-regions from the last three rides...no pain no gain, people!).
