The Friday Fix: What a difference a saddle makes

Here I was trying to sell this bike and I recently went back to my Brooks saddle and it's a whole different bike, or shall I say the bike that I used to love riding before I changed the saddle.

On Monday, I rode with the yellow saddle but combined with the seatpost, I just couldn't get it high enough to make it comfortable to ride. When I put the Brooks back, it changed everything. Wednesday's commute to work proved it. The bike fit nicely again and it was a pleasure to ride that I am now of the mind that I will never sell this bike.

I think, however, that once I get the Deathfork back in business I might try the Marin as a fixed cross bike. It's a bit heavy but I get the feeling that it's going to be fun off road.
