where did you order yours from? looks like a comfy saddle. My current raceface is not making my arse happy…

It was easy for me, as I live in Germany.

I think they´ll ship to Canada as well.

The Espacio Libre in the wide size is really, really comfortable. I have two and really love them. Tried a lot of saddles and this one keeps me real happy.

And for an ergonomic saddle it looks rad!

Wonder if it's the bushings?

I wounder if its the air around the bushings? Wouldn't that make the bike lighter as they wear…………………

I think they use helium instead of air… much lighter.

ah sneaky! Well I sourced one from http://store.radsportusa.com/ and they were great. I had to go for the grey/black one since the green was out of stock! But I still got it for the sale price which was great :D

Do you think we'll all be riding around with 63 degree head angles in 2016?

So the front-centre is so long that the saddle has to be slammed all the way forward? I don't get it. This is surpassing Mondraker's take on forward geometry… too much of a good thing maybe?

Thanks I'm pretty Frugal, except when it comes to my bikes and beer

ElevenSix , 1st ride impressions

It’s predictable, climbs great and the traction has made me faster on day one, at least that's how it felt behind the controls. Strava (LOL x2) says so as well, I leapfrogged a few spots yesterday which is a good endorsement for the shock’s virgin ride.
I’ve had to slightly adjust my rider position for climbs but it ascends as good as the CCDB Air CS/CC Inline, maybe better, time will tell. Sitting down , pedalling up did feel extra comfortable , almost like I was wearing 2 Chamois.

I’m encouraged to “Push” my downhill speeds even faster, but I will need to adjust my fork. I will recheck its sag etc. before the next ride. I may need to speed up the forks rebound as it may not be faster than the ElevenSix and or add another click of high or low speed compression .or I may just need to adjust to the coil feel and slightly change my "attack position, again…. time will tell.

I was a little worried that it may not jump well in the DH setting (which is the only setting I’ve used so far for downs) but it killed it, in fact the ElevenSix offers a way more natural feeling throughout the whole jump and landing process. The Shock ramps up nicely in and out of high speed berms and again immediately into big jumps and then springs out with some very comfortable and predictable boost. Actually the Senders felt better than ever, so predictable that I was able to incorporate some flare into every jump.

Also When you need to hit the gas on flat or slightly uphill terrain, the shock pedals really well in the open position.

Lots’ more riding to be done.

Did you just get that? I'm pretty sure you had a Float X when I met you at Bear on Sunday with Oz.

Shed head!
