How to recover your saddle part III- carbon saddle repair selle italia slr 135

Found this for $12 or so...

Removed enough of the foam that I could get at it to repair

Devised a way to clamp it in place

Added 3-4 layers of 5 oz carbon fiber to each side with high impact resin

Removed the rest of the foam (had considered rebuilding it to original shape, but my butt likes more padding than the SLR comes with)

Added new foam and shaped to taste

Wrapped with 3 way stretch faux leather-  same stuff I've used before and had great luck with

End product is a 188g saddle with quite a bit of padding.  Rode it tonight for first time, quite happy.
