"I was a bit dubious about buying a saddle on the net without trying it, but this has been an excellent choice.
I chose this on the basis that the shape was very similar to my old Specialised seat, and so far have found it very comfortable. I don't know if it would suit all shapes, but my bony butt doesn't mind, I've done some long rides with no ill effects.
Plus, all the carbon doesn't hurt the visuals either...

Pros: Durable, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit

"I had narrowed my choice of tyre down to 2, and the Schwalbe was the one I went for. Purely I chose this tyre for the looks, I wanted the white stripe rather than a plain black tyre to match my new build.
Don't get me wrong, this is an excellent tyre, but for the roads I have been riding on, I don't believe it has lasted that well. There are cuts and slices all over the tyre, although only 1 flat caused by a small staple of all things.
I could highly recommend this as a race tyre, but as an everyday training tyre, I'm not so sure. I love the light weight, but longevity is compromised.
I will now have to try my other choice of tyre and do a real comparison.

Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit

Is there a rotation arrow?

I have just bought this tyre and cannot find a rotation direction arrow. Is there one? There was nothing in the accompanying leaflet. However, It was dark when I was fitting!
I bought the Schwalbe Ultremo ZX Evolution HD Folding Road Tyre. There is no arrow that I've seen, these are unidirectional tyres. I am swapping between front and rear regularly to try and even the wear out.
