    After 2 seasons of riding, the nose of my Fizik Arione saddle has begun to wear through. (See attached pics) [​IMG][​IMG]

    Aside from saddle replacement, anybody have any suggestions? Thanks in advance; this forum is fantastic!

    My bike got knocked over and scuffed and tore my Selle San Marco leather cover a bit. I fixed it with Shoe Goo, smoothing the Goo with my finger. Afterward, it looked great and wore very well. A bonus to using Shoe Goo is that it can be used for many different things. I also use it to fill in large nicks or cuts in my tires. I also used it to repair a corner of a Bibler tent that got blown out in a storm (climbing partner didn't seat a pole correctly). I was advised to use it by Sr. Bibler himself, and the repair survived many mountain storms after that. You can get the Goo in clear or black: [​IMG]

    Many thanks, Alienator. I will definitely be giving this a shot.

    I didn't even think of that. Now that I can see the picture (wasn't showing up for me before), I can see that it isn't really very bad at all. White Shoe Goo should work fine.
