Sorry, my fault for not reading what you wrote properly but also I just wanted to highlight that economically, it is perhaps the way to go but not without faults.

Like Zipp, there were issues too and price is at a premium.

That said, I have not really encountered many custom wheels from China here, there are however many uncommon brands which I have heard to be pretty reliable such as:

- Farsports
- RHC
- Veloforce
- Astuto(no longer with Megabike)

ok can put into consideration list
unfortunately don't have that "someone" haha
nope, the bike fitter does not have tester unit, not doing fitting on mechanical bull and read from computer
Bike fitter located at cyclist wardrobe, recommended by a taiko here
Currently using default saddle, Giant Contact. Bike fitter suggested to go with Specialized Power Saddle. Thus I'm a little worry if after buying Specialized Power Saddle and still having numbness.

i change from giant contact to sworks ec90 power saddle oso.
same comfort as ori. but not as strong as ori. flex quite a bit.

yeah if test saddle is possible then that will solve my doubt
haha, copy version, even though the shape looks the same, the feel should still be different i think?
*
even among PRC copies there are different levels of qualities.

i have compared this with an actual specialised saddle side by side, it is very, very close in terms of shape, weight and even thickness of padding. as to whether the foam material inside is same or not i cannot say for sure but for the price i paid, it is worth every cent of gamble. as mentioned earlier, no complaints. crotch numbness issue still occur, but at far less frequency and i also get off saddle occasionally

without the plastics in the air hole that could be the reason why it flexes more

Was told by Keong that usually custom wheelset cannot compete in terms of pricing to those being churned out of factories due to economy of scale.

Then again, go custom if you really really want specific parts to be on the wheelset that off the shelves can't satisfy one's want?

Flexes more not due to the lobang in the middle but more of the quality of the build of EC90 to the ori made by Spez.

a fren showed me his ec90 saddle without the middle plastic, just pushing down by hand can see the sides droop down already, while mine with the middle plastics, press down doesnt droop.

so as i said before even among copies got different quality
