    Brooks saddles are more likely to be wide enough and hard enough that your weight is on your sit bones, meaning the boys won't touch the saddle. However, if you have more than 4 inches of drop from saddle to bars you're gonna struggle with a brooks, or most normal looking saddles for that matter.

    The swift is that much - you can get a pro for 150 (i got 2 for that much, but i can't let you have them) or even a B17 for under 100 and cut the 'wings' off. Specialised saddles come in multiple widths. Robbie's saddle - the selle san marco - is wide too i think.

    Ebay US is cheaper than here btw.

    Regals are super comfortable IMO, even though those rivets would make you think otherwise.

    HDT, you might want to look at so-called "women's" saddles if you think it could be a question of width, 'coz they're made slightly wider to accommodate the wider female pelvis. I have a Selle Italia Lady Gel Flow I'm not using if you want to try it just as a "suck it and see" thing (PM me over on CF or send me an email)

    Might not be a saddle contact issue, either, could be more of a "squashed between the thighs" thing when you're pedalling, in which case you need to look at that side of things when deciding on a saddle (and possibly hoist 'em high)

    I only just noticed that the San Marcos have different width saddles.
    There's a big ad in the latet Ride mag

    Has the new Ride come out already? Or are you referring to the one with Flandis on the cover?

    Great saddles. Really hard to get now. Theyve stopped making them. Got a turbomatic 4 from Geoffrey Butler in the UK for my dad a couple of months ago - about $80 delivered.

    HDT I'll give you the Concor off my race bike if it'll stop you whinging. And that's saying a lot because not even a nude swedish hitchhiker with huge tits and a desire to massage would get to sit on the Concor

    FFS saddles ain't rocket science: if it hurts then it's probably never gonna stop hurting, so you take it back to the LBS and get a different one to try until you find true love.

    Either that or you take the pain of an irritated perenium and learn to manual the last bits of pee out of the urethra. There's no gurantee that that will make your saddle feel any better, but you might be able to work out how to save embarrassment.

    From The Age - 'Australia overhauled England's meagre total of 110 with nine wickets in hand and 25.3 overs to spare.'

    ROFLMAO

    Pathetic. They should just go home and stop wasting everyones time.

    I have been telling my English colleagues that things can only get better from here. I cannot imagine that it can possibly get any worse.

    Looking for a saddle for my mtb for my tour of NZ in a couple of months. Saw a Brooks for the first time in real life on the weekend. Bludy thing was so hard I almost broke my thumb on it pressing it. No way I'm touring on one of those. What else is good for touring with? No point asking in the touring forums. They're sponsored by brooks so they're biased.

    BTW, my handlbars and saddle height are about even.

    Kiwis were a bit unlucky IMO last night. If they had of held a couple of catches or had some decisions go their way they might have got over the line.

    And if Australia had of stopped lollygaging they might have beat them by 150.
