    Composit has turned up. I have done around 1 mile on each (I'm poorly) but my first feeling is that they are both comfortable but the composit felt less imposing. By that I mean I didn't feel the "scoop" under me as much. Some real testing tomorrow.

    Cheers @branwen it's a Bob Jackson Vigorelli with 25mm tyres used on the road.

    New plan! I've got work tomorrow, that's a 10 mile ride each way. I'll ride one saddle there and the other on the way back. Whatever feels best will come with me on the Audax. If it gets unbearable after 180k when I pass my house I'll pop in and swap them over, if not I guess I've found a saddle that's fine.

    Thanks, you still running either of them? The composit is arriving tomorrow. I've got a 440k ride at the weekend with my house 180k in. I'm thinking of trying one for the first 180k and the other for the next 260k. Either that or just take both with me and put the spare in my bag.

    I've got an Orbit kiddyback tandem that served me and my Son well from the age of 5 up until around a year ago. Well worth the investment. Now he's in secondary school so he doesn't want to be seen on it anymore.

    I've been commuting on 38mm slick gravelkings with tubes since Jan, loads of life left. I've had one puncture but that was an issue with the rim tape rather than the tyre. I may size down a little when they die but it's a good tyre.

    I've got a forma on trial from dillglove at the moment. Thinking about giving them another deposit for the composit. People that have used both, how do you describe the difference between the two?
    Edit: just rang dillglove and paid another deposit for the composit so I can try them side by side.

    @EpicFrank Most people want a seller to be honest, you've proven not to be. GLWS

    I'm on the hunt for a 53cm njs frame in good condition. Preferably Panasonic or Nagasawa but open to other makes, possibly Samson or Bridgestone.

    Must be dent free and must be 53cm CTT seat tube. Postage needed as I'm in Cornwall but open to collection from Bristol as I've got a few Audaxes up there.
