Okay, maybe an odd question for some, but I've been looking around at different saddles for my road bike and came across Steve Hogg's review of the Selle SMP saddles and became interested in those. There does not seem to be a local dealer for them so I've had to go mail order to try some out, and I've tried several, and am really liking them.
I found a real good deal on one, but it was only available in a women's model. Steve Hogg's review states there is no difference at all between the men's and women's models, except for the cosmetic stitching. So I ordered it and it may be my favorite of the group so far. But the stitching is magenta and it says "Lady" on the saddle nose.
Would any of you feel a little self-conscious using such a saddle? I realize that as long as I'm riding no one can tell the difference, but if I ever park it somewhere in public is a bit obvious. I saved nearly $100.00 on this particular one as close out, so if I want a man's version I would probably have to pay a premium.
Not sure what to do.
