Very nice!! I’ll have to keep this in mind given that the saddles i prefer are either pricey or discontinued / hard to find (or both).

Edit, I also have one that I don’t particularly like, but if it had a cutout and less padding in the nose, might be a decent road saddle. That will be another project
