I just recently blew out one of the rails on my saddle also. I'm going with some sort of specialized saddle. Can't remember which one right now. Its at the shop. Anyways, after seeing your post, I thought it might be time to do something about this......Every year 10's of thousands of innocent saddles are prematurely sent to the landfills. Saddles on bikes are being used for purposes not intended for that saddle. This is abuse. An abuse that we can do something about. The saddles are not part of the bikes suspension system. Get up onto your legs and pedals during rough riding periods. We can make a difference. Lets stop the slaughter of innocent saddles. The coalition of MTB'ers against saddle abuse is asking you to get involved and take a stand. Get up onto your pedals when there are G out forces. Don't ride on the sofa as you bomb the downhills. Get up onto your feet and enjoy the ride and keep your saddle safe and out of the landfill. You can make a difference. When you see a rider coasting along perched comfortably on that saddle, encourage them to take a stand!
never broken a saddle...
