    Sorry for the attitude but too often people say things on here for commercial reasons. ie to start a rumour that may hurt the manufacturer of the product in order to further their own interests....

    No way of telling the age, but by the mid 90's not a lot of plain flap saddles being sold.. I would guess the 80's. But I really do not know.

    Equilibrium w/ plain flaps ? No they never offered such a model.
    The saddle looks pretty much like one of the standard PDN childs models.

    Chestnut should oil up plenty dark.
    The color that is really light in a Crosby would have been the London color.

    Fantastic saddle desgined by Tad Coffin.
    It was the first Crosby to have wider panels and a deeper more euro jumper seat.. Collegiate is not really the same in design.
  12. Some added thoughts

    Helmets have to be tested on equipment not on actual people, that is unless you would like to be the tester :)

    The ASTM standard is an open procedure that allows ALL interested parties to have...

    The Hunterdon was actually a bit deeper seat saddle than the PDN's at the time. The PDN was a saddle that was constantly changing with the times so it is difficult that say that a PDN was this or...

  22. COST OF SEAT REPAIRS

    The cost of a seat repair is really very expensive because they essentially have to take the saddle apart and rebuild it.

    Quality from saddler to saddler really varies as does the price.

  23. SEAT SIZE

    While seat size may be of value, I think the seat in combination with the flap design is the most critical concern.
    A long hip to knee may require a more forward flap and a longer knee to ankle may...
  24. PESSOA SADDLES COME IN FORWARD FLAP

    Most of the Pessoa saddles come with a forward flap option.
    The Legacy has the most forward flap as it is designed for a shorter stirrup position.
