    I love this saddle. I own a Brooks B17 Imperial on my Xtracycle, and was considering a second for my Jamis touring bike but thought I'd give the Spoon a shot due to the great write-ups I had read. I am glad I did. It is different, indeed from the B17 Imperial, more agressive is the first thing I would note. It is okay for casual rides of a few miles but for more than that you'll need chamois. I prefer it on agressive, longer rides where it simply gives me the control I need while my weight is distributed more in my pedaling than in sitting on the perch. I just love it, and the brown looks nice on my touring bike with leather grip tape. It is nice not having cover it up or make sure it's locked up properly like my brooks. Very, very low maintenance.

    Really looking forward to their new product, the SCOOP, which I have ordered for my fat bike.

    I've had this saddle on my rigid 29er for a few months now. For the price, it's great. It is solidly constructed, not very heavy and looks really good in brown.

    It's not perfect though. I am starting to notice that the brown polyurethane laminate is starting to peel towards the nose of the saddle. But the bigger issue is comfort. I can't say this is a comfortable saddle for me. I'm not sure if the so called "pressure relief channel" is really working, in fact I feel a lot of pressure where such a channel should be! Also it seems quite narrow, my sit bones rest right on the edges of the wings. I know everyone's butt is a different shape, but for me this saddle is pretty uncomfortable (and I never ride without padded shorts).

    That being said, I'll probably keep using it. Ideally I'd have something a little better for when the trail gets rough, but it's a great value and is very stylish.

    Comments about Charge Spoon Cromo Saddle:

    Overall, it's a pretty good seat. It's relatively comfortable, but my taint still starts hurting after a long ride.

    The worst bit is how much it creaks. Haven't been able to figure out how to get it to stop. Other than that it's fine.

        This seat is awesome for downhill or types of riding that requires standing frequently. It gets uncomfortable after sitting on it for long periods of time.

        Very comfortable and great looking seat. Not the lightest, but great for the money. As some of the other review stated, the brown suede is a bit sticky and I have had my shorts bind to it. All in all, I am very happy with the purchase.

              Comments about Charge Spoon Cromo Saddle:

              I bought this saddle for my '91 GT Talera rigid MTB that I picked up for $40. It needed a better saddle and I wanted to keep the cost down. This saddle fit the bill. The saddle design works for me, I've done 5 - 6 hour rides with nothing but the mild soreness which is to be expected after that much time on any saddle. It's firm, which I like. The fit and finish are excellent, the materials are durable and look great. I bought another one for my cross bike and it holds up to my 210lb body landing down on it from running mounts with no problems.

                This is a great high performance saddle for a great price. I bought this saddle for my Heckler awhile back, it worked so well I got a 2nd one for my rigid Trek 3500 disc project bike. Comfy saddle with a minimalist design. The WTB Speed V saddle it replaced was falling apart, after only a few seasons use and no crash damage. At 270 grams, The Spoon saddle is 45 grams light than my old saddle. I've put a few hundred miles on this saddle so far and it doesn't show 1 sign of wear.

                  Comments about Charge Spoon Cromo Saddle:

                  So I'm kinda new to the cycling scene, I got a bike because it seemed like a good way of transportation and since then I've grown more passionate about it. That being said I'm no expert on all things cycling but I know a good product when I see one. I use my bike for getting around town whether it's commuting to work, going to the store, or just for a days ride, and so far this saddle feels great! I haven't had it for too long maybe a few weeks but no complaints. I have nothing bad to say about it, and I don't think that will change.

                  Comments about Charge Spoon Cromo Saddle:

                  It's a great product in terms of support and fit, but has one issue. I found the cover (vinyl or leather) to be way too sticky (too much friction). If I ride it with loose bike shorts, they will bunch up. Also, need some adjustment after getting out of the saddle. Tight bike shorts reduce this issue, but it still has way too much friction compared to any saddle I've used. It's almost like rubber.

                  I found a way to relieve this issue until the saddle breaks in and loses some of this friction. I used automotive silicone spray (STP Son of a Gun) for dashboards, vinyl, rubber, etc. I've ridden it for over a week and it's still low friction. Hopefully this issue goes away with time and miles.
