I’ll admit it: I’m obsessive about colours on bikes. I know that black saddles are practical, but they so soboring. I love seeing someone with a white saddle on a black bike. To me, a new white saddle says, I’ll get dirty but I look good now.
But how about white with gold, or maybe metallic red? Fizik’s US distributor, Highway2, is offering a custom saddle program through selected bike shops. Expect a wait and an upcharge.
I’ve got a Bianchi bike on order…maybe I’ll get celeste with world champ stripes down the middle. But how will that look? No worries, the Fizik website has a nice little interactive that allows you to see your saddle before you order. Go there and play with the colours. Some saddles offer more options than others.
