Bought my wife a new saddle for mothers day...

Hope I did good... I bought her the Bontrager Inform RL. I think that will make a good gift.

Thanks miss kenton! We have some long rides scheduled in Sept. and Oct. I think this will make it more comfortable for her.

Awesome. It was a wonderful gift. I'll have to think of giving my sweetheart a saddle too.

But must measure her sit bones without being a creep somehow...

Yeah, there is no way to be sneaky about measuring sit bones!
