Tom, I am also dangerously close to 200 pounds. Back in the day, I broke a Concor superleggera saddle (alloy rails) at 165 pounds. The saddle hadn't been crashed and I'd guess metal fatigue. My pedaling was also smoother back then. FWIW, I wouldn't ride that saddle much. Ed Kasper "Souplesse, make mine a bowl..." Detroit
