Selle San Marco Mantra: Rapha Colours

Edo's Mantra recovered in black kangaroo with the classic Rapha CX colours for the other Baum/Rapha Tour Down Under Corretto.  Three colour triple perforation bar tape.  Now rolling around various parts of Indonesia.

Fizik Aliante: Antique Rapha Colours

This Aliante had a few problems.  Hand dyed leather combined with bright/light coloured perforation underlays looks great but the dye gradually leeches onto the colours causing them to take on a tint of the main saddle colour.  The solution; don't use hand dyed leather if you want bright contrast details.  There are plenty of other kangaroo colours to choose from, it will just take a bit more riding to make them look antique.

Selle SMP: Hand Dyed Duo

Stockholm bicycle courier Bjorn has two hand dyed kangaroo SMP saddles with matching bar tape for his birthday. Happy birthday Bjorn.
