I did not think that this saddle was actually available. Last I saw was that it was coming out this year sometime.

Appears you are correct. The reviews were from saddles Brooks provided at shows and to reviewers. Universal Cycles shows them, but they are not in stock when you try to get one.....well, maybe next time.

UPDATE....Harris Cyclery shows IN STOCK for the natural color, but not the Slate.
