    Agree...it's a stunningly gorgeous saddle. I can imagine it on a liver chestnut ;) Forestier makes a lovely saddle, too.

    FRIENDLY BUMP!

    Do you know the cm size of the tree? This saddle is delicious. Would you do a trial?

    MM, there is no marking for the "tree" but you can see the dot-to-dot measurement in inches in the photos above. It would be difficult for me support a non-local trial due to the value of this saddle. A local trial I already had was, um...challenging...to get the saddle back. I realize that doesn't help sell it, but unlike a business, I have less leverage on a prospective buyer if things go wrong. If you have an idea about how I could offer a trial that protects me financially, I might entertain it.

    To do a trial you could get a full payment and if they decide it doesn't work or fit they can bring it back for refund. Providing it isn't damaged or ruined in any way.. Protects you as a seller.. That's how we work trials on saddles.. Credit card or cash is always best. Hope this helps some.

    If only I could trade a few inches off my legs and rear for $2000!

    Friendly bump regardless.

    Friendly bump for you...Forestiers are wonderful saddles and vastly under-recognized in North America IME. Whoever is lucky enough to get this saddle won't be disappointed!!

    Well, I hope your Vega sells "real soon now"...I'd love to be able to buy my daughter a new high-end saddle, but cannot do that unless this one sells. And honestly, if I had a 17-17.5" butt, I wouldn't be selling this at all... ;)
