In the magazine given to me by Mr. Ace Tia, there was a review of bicycle seats. (This is not for us who buy 300 pesos Taiwan made seats but for those who desire and can afford the very best).  The lowest price of the seat post reviewed is 59.99 pounds sterling and the most expensive is l52.99 pounds.

Those that were reviewed were:

l.  Specialized Romin Com, 59.99 pounds,  2l2 gms, chromoly railing, l55 mm by specialized

2.  Bontrager Affinity Rl, 59.99, hollow ti railing, round 222 gms, l48 mm

All the top favorites are there:  Selle Italia, San Marco, Fizik.

Which do you think is the best?  the favorite?

The lightest is of course made of carbon fiber Specialized at l32 gms.  It does not make the best seat though.  The verdict:

BEST FOR RACING:  Selle Italia Flite

Best for Value:  Bontrager Affinity.

Best Overall:  Fizik Alliante.

Who has Fizik Seats here?  Weng and Joel.  Congrats.

                                               Colnago is also expensive but not in contention

Can you afford a P5,000.00 and up seat?
