    Getting rid of pink in a saddle?

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Does anyone know of a good way to hide or disguise the pink stitching and logo on the Selle Italia SLR Lady Gel Flow saddle??? I'm looking at picking up a black one, but the pink stitching and logo will completely clash with my bike colors. I just want a solid black saddle. Will taking a permanent marker to it, disguise it? Or is there some other type of "dye" that is better to use? I'm open to any ideas. Thanks!

    I'd definitely try a permanent marker. (and you might have to redo it periodically)

    I've used indelible marker on the edge of the white lining of black jeans pockets and it's worked very well. I've also got some tights that have the grey flatlock stitching that need the same treatment.

    Go the marker route first. Easiest and cheapest method.

    You might be able to unpick the stitches? Otherwise I think the permanent marker will work really well.
