A new kind of saddle

Postby CREPELLO » 3 Apr 2016, 9:03pm

A came across this picture on facebook, so thought I'd share it here. Would this reduce the nickability of a bike in London I wonder? It even has an integrated mudguard.

I must say, I think a bit of moss and ivy at the saddle would enhance the ride no end :mrgreen:
