comment Saddles and Bent Metal Rails
Nice, looks just the same as mine last year. @PeteH: I didn't have an accident as it broke, so I can tell a bit more: I didn't really feel when it broke, just noticed that the saddle seemed to be bit more "wobbly" when riding. The good thing was, that under load the ends of the broken bar were pressed against each other which kept the whole thing somewhat stable and was enough to get me home.
