|When I first sat on the Fabric Line it didn't immediately stand out as anything extraordinary - after all, it is a seat and worked really well for sitting. I decided to put it to the test and set out on some of the most uncomfortable rides I could think of, including one that starts with a 10 mile dirt road climb at just the wrong angle of elevation. In the past, this particular climb has forced me out of the saddle in order to revive my privates that had fallen asleep. Surprisingly, the Line saddle fixed this. The central relief channel worked as claimed, and it worked so well that I was able to sit for the majority of the climb without any numbness.|
My quest to make myself uncomfortable on the Fabric's Line continued, and on some rides, I even removed padded shorts from the equation. Like any seat, I achieved discomfort, but only the normal soreness from a long day on the bike. The Line's performance was impressive, and I also appreciated the fact that Fabric was able to incorporate a relief channel into the seat without sacrificing its modern aesthetic.
I did manage to accidentally scratch the nose of saddle when I dragged it along the camper shell of a truck while removing the bike from the back. This was not the fault of Fabric, but my fault for not being able to control my excitement to get on the bike. Other than that scratch the saddle has proven to be durable and has remained free of any creak or squeaks. For riders who are considering updating their saddle and are looking for a slim and comfortable option, the Line fits the bill, and I'd say for the price, it is even worth it for the rider who only cares if their seat matches their wheels. - Jeremy Muskat
