Maybe hucking big nothings and no footers and missing the pedals?

The one I saw swallow a testicle was on a national team I was managing at world champs. XCO, rock garden, rider bounced on saddle hard in the rock garden so a bit of a g out type effect. Bang.

Any of those carbon saddles can be damaged badly sliding in a crash and as they are formed to curve and flex one way, don’t cope well with the type of crash where they snag or a dragged on ground flexing up.

i just wanna know how tf you guys are breaking saddles

I cracked my ergon saddle the long way between the rails. Not sure which slam finally did it in.... It had seen many falls so it might have just been an accumulation of abuse over a couple years.

STA doesn't matter at all on a single speed but it def needs an angleset to slacken the front. Then it would be a ton of fun.

Yeah, I guess, but something tells me with a STA like that, if the ride thinks the bike fits when seated, then out of the saddle (like, all the time on a SS) that thing is gonna be cramped. That or they love being super stretched out when seated.

I mean to be honest, the seat tube angle and reach are around the same as my Ragley Big Wig (both in XL) and I don't find it cramped or stretched out.
