Hi
I picked up a SaddleCo saddle a couple of months ago and like it a
lot. Looks good, and feels good. I weigh in at about 180 and have no
problems although my longest ride since purchasing the saddle was only
a couple of hours. The only other saddle I really feel comfortable on
is a Brooks Swift but I wanted to try a saddle that was less
susceptible to water damage. Hope this helps

I just tried my new Flow recently for 50 miles..it was mostly very good, but I did have a problem with rubbing from the frame - like my weight (155#) was forcing me down on the frame. I understand it's an adjustment problem, so I will try again shortly...
The weight limit is 200#.
It's a sweet looking saddle, and the feel is great...I just hope I can adjust it so I don't rub on the frame. I emailed the mfgr but have no reply (1 week ago).
In summary, "the jury is still out" as far as I'm concerned..

I will update if and when I get this right. Most posts and opinions I have read have been very good - that's why I bought it..

Good luck
