Does anybody know what the saddle is that Lance Armstrong is using on his new bike this year?

Armstrong's familiar Selle San Marco Concor Lite saddle is perched atop the semi-integrated seatmast head.

giant mine was second hand one given to me by my fellow hubber who took pity on me having a sore bum Big%20smile and that was almost a year ago and i am sure he had the saddle for a few years and it still looks good and my bum is a for away no problems and when the saddle is worn out i will replace it with another one for sure Thumbs%20Up

It's interesting that he's using an old San Marco model... does anyone know where in SA you can get these?

Giant, you get the R200 XO saddles and then you get the R500 ones with the Manganese (proberbly from Manga) rails and genuine leather cover. I'm the one who gave Hagar the saddle and I think I had it for 5 years before passing it on.

I'm not sure if they bring in the retro stuff to SA. I bought a San Marco Regal from TotalCycling.com, and you can also still get the Rolls and Concor as well.

he does not follow trends. He uses what he knows works. Before the new shaped Shimano pedals he used heavy 5 year old pedals and the only way he could shave more weight on his bike was to get rid of his pedals. He helped develop the new Shimanos and that is why is he riding it still on his Sram bike.

Lance uses the Concor. The ones on his TT machines get their noses chopped off to conform to UCI rules - they look really silly....
