Recovered Saddle

Good day all.

My name is Jason Moore. I am the owner and only employee of Recovered Saddle and I make custom saddle covers.

History:
A few years back I bought a Merckx Strada OS and some elkhide sew-on bar tape. I wanted a matching saddle but no luck out on the market so i went to a leather shop, bought a matching piece of leather and recovered an old Flite.

Current:
I have been covering saddles for nearly 3.5 years now and have covered 400+ saddles, and counting. Along the way I have hooked up with Ray at Handlebra who now supplies me all my leather so you too can have a matching saddle and bar tape. Ray and I have worked together almost since I started. He has been a great resouce and supporter of mine. I appreciate his insight and help.

Today:
I have recently completely relaunched my website and am taking in orders every week. I can barely keep up. I am in the process of developing a new non-saddle product which I hope to have ready by the end of summer. Prototype #2 is being worked up now.

The Paceline:
I have been a long time member of the Paceline and this place has been a great source of customers for me. I have also made some good imaginary internet friends and learned a lot more about bikes than I ever thought I would. It's a great place and I wanted to give back a little bit, so I was happy that a sponsorship opportunity came up. So here I am. I'm afraid you are all stuck with me.

So there it is.

Jason does amazing work, here's a few he's done for me. I'm in line for another, my 6th, can't see a reason to buy new.

Latest pics of my Potts in the Gallery show the Selle Italia Turbomatic II recovered by Jason to match the bar tape. I think it was the first Turbomatic he'd done, lots of trip pieces, but it turned out awesome.

Those are some of the best on-the-road shots of a saddle I've seen in a while. Any chance you can send me hi-res copies? I will do a blog post and put them up on the site for sure.

And that Potts is fantastic. Would love a bike just like it.
