    I have Selle Anatomica saddles on all but one of my bikes (the 29er). I'm a huge fan of the SA saddles, but some folks don't get on with the saddles' increased flexibility.

    I've been demo'ing an AWOL Comp, and even with 28mm tires, it's extremely sure-footed. And with 40mm knobbies, it's a blast on dirt/gravel roads.

    Also, the 32mm size will utilize a different tread pattern (see: http://issuu.com/ivovydra/docs/panaracer-katalog-2015).
