Len J has been one of my imaginary internet friends for a long time. He has impeccable taste in bikes and always been generous with advice on any number of subjects. He even reviewed and edited my resume when I got laid off in 2008. Just an all around great guy.
I was pleasantly surprised when he emailed me one day last year to talk about doing a saddle for his new Serotta travel bike.
I’d like a red leather saddle.
I don’t stock red leather just yet.
What if I did two saddles?
If you did two saddles and two sets of bar tape, I’ll do it.
Let’s do it.
And so we did it. Wow. Just wow.
