Default Re: Tinsmith's saddle how to...

Nice job man . Take some Gum Tragacanth ..or spit lol ... rub it onto the edge and take a plastic spoon and rub it real quick back and forth . It will seal it better . Or you can Braid it .

It should last a long time, as long as the bike lasts and long after Tinsmith and Silverbear have left this earth.
So here's your saddle, Bud.
