They are nice saddles. Super, super comfy. The only main issue is that you HAVE to take REALLY good care of it. Clean it after just about every ride, keep it out of harms way, etc. They don't hold up very well, they can be very easy to really destroy if you aren't careful. Presicely why I bought a M. Toulouse instead. Plus, the MTs just fit my body type better. But everybody's body is different, so don't let me drive you from them just because of that.
Essentially, I do like Bates, but I like M. Toulouse better. Of course there are the Antares and Pessoa, CWD, etc., but I figured I'd only mention things that are within the price range of most Bates :p
