recovering saddle

Hey all’,

I am just wondering if anyone have recovered their saddles before?? I can order a roll of raw leather from the state thinking if i should recover my saddle even though it aint that bash up yet.

My questions are:

  1. is it a hard job?
  2. could u be bothered?


it’s harder than it looks, and it’s a pain in the ass to do well.
one little mistake in the tensioning od=f the leather while you shape it can fuck the job totally.
try it if you want to just try it out, but realistically, unless your saddle is something special, you might as well ride it till you can’t tape it up any more, then get a new one.

Ok no worries thx for the tip. Yer i know its hard to do especially the shape of my saddle. Oh well i guess i get a new one when it bashed up.

only if you do it right
