So I've been so lax in posting that I have had people tracking me down at work for updates on some of the things I've left hanging out there...namely the Bontrager InForm Saddle that I've been riding lately. (Jeff, again - thanks for the effort in tracking me down...I hope you're enjoying your new saddle.) So, thanks for humoring me while I get caught up. And for those of you who have been waiting for some resolution on things; it's coming - thanks for your patience. And, without further adieu: my final analysis on the InForm RL saddle from Bontrager.
First - if you've not yet read my initial write up on this saddle; read the previous post. The following will make much more sense if you read this all in sequence.
I have long since passed my 10-hour self-imposed timeline for testing a product. My long term impression is not too different from my initial thoughts on the seat. It's actually quite comfortable and the claims about size-specific arc and proportions that Bontrager makes (backed-up by some not too heavily publicized research) do seem to be well-founded and correct.
Little notes from the first post on the saddle:
1) No abnormal wear after 10+ hours. Still looks new. Ought to hold up well
2) Plastic "pointy" cap under nose of saddle still grabs at certain shorts - but only mildly irritating.
3)I slid the seat further forward after a couple of rides as it seemed I was riding more to the rear of the saddle than on my Selle Italia saddles. This was done all by feel and I have not had anyone evaluate my knee position in relation to my pedals on the Bontrager to see if the adjustment was well founded keen observation or me just "feeling" something that wasn't real.
If there are any loose ends that I didn't tie up, or you have other questions; leave a comment and I'll answer as best as I can.
