Bike saddle theft explanation

Last week, I reported on my son’s bike saddle and seatpost getting stolen and ditched in the bushes—behavior I had a hard time explaining.

Today, my son examined the recovered saddle and realized that it wasn’t his, but was a lower quality saddle.  So now we have a potential explanation—the saddle was stolen by someone on a bicycle, who upgraded their saddle then ditched the old one.  I hesitate to call the thief a bicyclist, though, since they did not even bother putting the crummy saddle on my son’s bike.  A saddle swap would still have been a theft, but would have left my son’s bike usable.

I suspect that the thief was on a stolen bike and was trying to replace parts to make it look less recognizable.
