Very surprising thinking about it, nothing on the topic of saddles here. So to start off: About a year ago I bought this, a joint production branded Middlemores but made by Iscaselle. I rode it for about a week and it was ok, but at around 130mm width it is too narrow to use permanently.
Quiet like the logo!
Me too! This is something they revived from the old Middlemore and Lamplugh days, as in this 1916 advert http://www.gracesguide.co.uk/images/0/04/Im1916Walsall-Middlemore.jpg
One fucking ugly saddle, glad this conversation is being kept in Coventry.
Certainly odd looking!
Any info about the design, what year's it from?
It would be a different perspective fitted on a bike, but it is what it is. This is based on the Iscasell Targa/Iscaselle Triathlon, currently a Targa on ebay at £91! I don't know the year of this at all but i'd guess 80s
Is anyone else going to add their saddles? :)
Here is my Wrights W33/1 which is currently on my fixed gear cruiser. A bit rough around the rivets but that hasn't noticable got any worse since I had it, over a year now I think.
I finally got around to photographing my Iscaselle Dakar, still haven't ridden it though, if I ever get it onto a bike it will be my singlespeed
Thanks...... the shape always makes me think of a Concorde.
One of my favourites!
You spent a big chunk of money! Looks nice though.
Didn't spend, just a favourite.
Would buy one, but new version is plastic only!
Ah! .....might as well put some favourites on here as it's not overwhelmed with stuff :)
I wouldn't mind an Iscaselle Time. It has a clock in the front, orientated so when the rider looks down it's their right way up.
Wish list: A white NOS Dakar http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/6/7/7/0/4/9/webimg/724490600_o.jpg?nc=398 $110 dollars though.
Thats cheap. Most decent saddles these days are way more than that.
Yes, but after I bought mine for £30 I saw one that went on ebay for £8, so in context it seems a bit much.
I bought one of these NOS saddles, someone in the US is selling them for around £18 , my first suede too!
