Two billets on each side are in excellent condition. Currently the back billet is crossed and is being used as the front billet, this is not unusual and is done to maximize saddle stability. The thigh blocks are on velcro and can be re-positioned or even switched out for other options. You can change the angle of the block or remove the block and replace it with another Schleese block. The tree is currently set to what we consider to be approximately a medium but can be adjusted prior to trial. Please ask us about wither tracings and other information needed for adjustment.
