flexible tree on a Crump saddle?
I'm going to go look at an older Crump close contact saddle this weekend. When I asked how wide the tree is, she said that it's on the narrow side of medium, but that it's a flexible tree, so it will expand a little to fit various shoulder-sizes.
This will be the first Crump I've ever seen. I know they're decent saddles, but the flexible tree is new to me.
Does anybody know anything about these trees? Just how much flex do they have? Are they known for pinching, or being easily damaged or anything?
