Cool, I have bookmarked your thread.

I just received my package from CotD. The seat is quite good for a cheapy, seems well built, comfortable and it is about half the weight of the old saddle it is replacing. Not sure if it will suite the bike it is going on, but I'll give it a go. Otherwise I can sell it to recover my costs.

Took it for a quick 14km ride with the new saddle, it's definitely ok for the price, and a heap more comfortable than the original saddle.
Will post a pic soon

Yeah I fit mine onto my project bike just to see what it looked like. I think I'll be keeping it. For $25 odd it's decent. Looks alright and is nice and light.
