Seat/Seat Post, Pedals and Water Bottles/Cages

I departed from tradition and chose a Selle Royal Respiro saddle instead of a Brooks B-17. I recently purchased one of these and used it on the DALMAC Tour. At the end of two days of riding, it occurred to me that I had absolutely no discomfort. Why change a good thing. I purchased another for the Sanner.

It was matched with a Ritchey Pro seat post, mounted and adjusted to be at the same relative height and position as the Cannondale SR500 I am used to riding.

I also purchased Shimano PD A530 pedals. With these, I can go SPD clipless, or if need be, flip them over and use the platforms.

I opted for Kleen Kanteen stainless steal water bottles along with their cages. I ordered three 27 ounce bottles in moss green, but upon mounting the cages, discovered that a 27 ounce bottle will not fit under the down tube. I substituted an 18 ounce instead. It just clears the front fender by a couple of centimeters.
