    I noticed that the bars were intact and the stem separated from the steerer tube, apparently
    cleanly, which means that the forces were sufficient to overcome the clamping torque or that
    maybe the stem...

    You're right. You're buying a pig in a poke. Many bike shops let you test ride saddles before
    you buy. If you go to an LBS that offers that, and like something, buy the saddle from them and

    no phone? How did you know what to do? Where to go? What was going on in the world? What if

    knows where you...
