Inner-Tube Saddle Repair

This is a used saddle I recently purchased for the 29er.  It was in pretty bad shape.  The leather had shrunk and the glue holding the leather to the saddle had failed.

I re-glued the leather, but it had shrunk enough that I couldn’t wrap in around the base of the saddle.  The new glue was held up on a few rides, but the edge of the leather was fraying and was probably not going to stay attached too long.

Pictured above is the solution.  This is a ~2″ length of 1.9″ mountain inner tube pulled over the nose of the saddle covering the exposed edges of the leather.

Trashed Flite Ti: $30 AUD
