    Default saddle repair question

    Today I noticed that the leather on rear block of my 10 year old Antares has worn through to reveal a little hole. its pretty small right now, just a little flap, but I want to take care of it. Since you cant see if when riding I dont feel I need to take it off somewhere to be repaired, but I was wondering if there was something i could use to seal it so it doesnt become a bigger problem.

    is there a glue or sealant I can use to stop the leather from peeling back even more that will be able to withstand being cleaned/friction from riding? thanks!

    I'm sure Antares would fix it...I just had to ghetto patch the knee on my saddle with leather and leather glue. It's holding okay...good enough to get through Thermal until I can figure out a more permanent solution.
