Remember the '80s?
Sure, you can reminisce about the Cyndi Lauper or Premier Gorbachev or Top Gun if you want, but to me the '80s were defined by the Pentagon spending scandal over the infamous $600 toilet seat.
600 dollars for a toilet seat, you say? How old-fashioned! It's a new millenium, and I'd like to present you with the $290 bike seat. Made by fi'zi:k (pronounced "physique"), the Arione Braided Carbon saddle is a combination of comfort, light weight, style and plain, old-fashioned bling. It uses braided carbon rails to absorb shock and "wing-flex" construction to free up thigh movement.
In other words: the saddle won't chafe you, even if the price does.
