    White saddle turning yellow

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    And no, I haven't peed on it I am a little frustrated. I hate white saddles, but I bought this one because I got a killer deal on it. I have the same saddle, but in black on my MTB.

    I don't use lotions or creams, so it can't be that. The only thing that could be touching it would be sweat (I do a lot of that) and chamois cream I suppose could theoretically seep through the shorts.

    Any thoughts?

    What have you tried so far? It is turning yellow all over or only in certain spots?

    - Gray 2010 carbon WSD road bike, Rivet Independence saddle
    - Red hardtail 26" aluminum mountain bike, Bontrager Evoke WSD saddle
    - Royal blue 2018 aluminum gravel bike, Rivet Pearl saddle

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver 2003 aluminum road bike
    - Two awesome worn out Juliana saddles

    I haven't tried anything other than cleaning it with Clorox cleanup. My shorts are always laundered before wearing them and it doesn't seem to matter which shorts I wear. The yellowing is most of the saddle, but I cover most of it except the nose.

    I'd put my money on sweat. If it's one of SI's leather-covered saddles, try regular soap.
    At least I don't leave slime trails.
