SA Down Under!

I am a customer and user of Sella Anatomica saddles for around five years now and have to say that it is the only saddle that for me is truly comfortable.
I'm not a big guy at 65 kg/ 143lb but no other saddle has allowed me to ride for so far or so long into the day ( longest single ride 385k/ about 240 miles) and get back on the bike the next day like I had not ridden the day before.
I decided to build a very light weight bike for climbing ( Bianchi Speciallissima frame) so that these old 72 year legs could still get up the big babies in France and Italy.
For this I chose a SA Carbon saddle but fortunately it did not arrive to me in Australia in time so I used the standard SA T saddle and had a very comfortable experience if not quite the lightest. Yes with my daughter we climbed Stelvio, Mortirolo, Gavia, Galibier, Madeleine, Alp d'Huez and more.
On arriving home the C saddle was waiting however there were some issues with fitting it to my seat post, just would not clamp up with out some vertical movement. Of course I informed carol at SA and this morning have had an email saying that there had been some issues with the seat rails and some seat post but a new saddle was on its way with remodeled rails that will fix the problem.
Thank you SA and the team for your service and I hope to report success once the new saddle is fitted and tested.
