Subject: [CR]Soliciting help from Ideale saddle experts.

Hi all,

I am trying to identify another Ideale saddle that recently came into my possession. I don't know the model number due to wearing of the logo area, but I see "COMPETITION" and can make out what looks to be either 88, 89, or 99, or 98.

Some detailed photos can be viewed here:


Please note that the tensioner nut is drilled on every other face, and there's an unusual nutted mechanism on the rear of the saddle. The rivets are copper and have Ideale stamped on them. It would be great to identify the model number or era that the saddle came from.

Thanks in advance for any clues,
