Saddle Recovering From Recovered

Recovered Selle Italia Flite

Ok, so how many times has this happened to you –

Recovered Fizik Arione

You’ve taken your wife out for a night on the town, meanwhile, your evil brother in law brings some of his drunken pals from the local Toga party to your place and makes himself at home in your workshop.  Next he grabs your favorite bike and decides to demonstrate  his wheelie popping skillz.  Then he breaks his ankle (an unfortunate inconvenience to be sure) but more distressing, he puts a rip in your $175 Selle Italia saddle!

Well what now?

Do what the smart kids do, contact Jason Moore from Recovered and have him repair and recover your saddle.  It’s that simple.  You discuss material and colors with Jason and then he does his magic.

And best of all, depending on what material you choose, it will only set you back around $25 plus change for shipping.  It gets better – your saddle cover does not have to be damaged to have it recovered, you can work with Jason to recover the saddle to match your bike, thus creating a custom saddle for yourself.

You can read what some customers have to say about his work in a a thread at the Serotta Competition forum right here.  Jason told me that he’s currently tooling up at the moment so he can do more work with leather saddles soon.

Jason is a Biking in Dallas reader who lives in Lake Highlands.  You might catch him on one of the many local bike trails, if you’re Biking in Dallas.

The following two tabs change content below.
Chris started riding a bike again when he noticed the Preston Ridge Trail being constructed across the street from his house. Since then he co-founded Biking in Dallas, has gone through countless Craigslist bike projects (some better than others) and can be found pedaling around town on a Electra Ticino with a camera in tow.
