I'd like to try a Brooks saddle on one of my commuter bikes but I've never been comfortable on a wide saddle. Even the Brooks B-17 Narrow is about 10 mm wider than anything I've ever felt comfortable on in an upright riding position and a whooping 19 mm wider than what I use on my road bikes.
Do they fit differently as far as width goes?
My problem on wider saddles is the transition area from nose to seat. When I get my sit bones back on the seat area, the transition area is too wide to fit properly between my thighs. So I end up sitting more forward on the nose and that's just bad. For reference, the E3 Form is my favorite saddle and it's got almost no transition area
