Yet Another "Yet Another Saddle Thread"
It looks like y'all haven't had one in awhile.
I'm currently on two bikes, either one might go for LD rides. #1 is a cross bike set up for touring, and that is doing fine with a standard Brooks B17.
The second one is more aggressive, a Specialized Allez with the bars a fair amount below the saddle. I've tried a few different saddles without much luck, including a B17N, and an Allez Toupe (143mm iirc). No luck yet.
I'm also not a particularly big person, but it seems like a lot of roadie-style saddles are too wide for my sit-bones, and the B17 is the right width. The Toupe comes close but feels a bit too harsh.
So, suggestions on a saddle that is fairly wide but also good for more aggressive positions?
And if I go for another Brooks, do I still want to tip the nose up when the bars are lower than the saddle?
