SA claims the width for seat bones as 130. Rail-to-Rail width is around 170, and length 290. It fits a lot like a b-17, though feels longer to me?

One of the things supposedly addressed by SA over brooks , is the rail length. The SA's are supposed to have a traditional longer rail, like you would find on a Specialized, so not requiring a setback seat post to dial-in fit issues like a brooks might require. I've not required a setback post for the SA saddle...I do use one on the bikes that have b-17's mounted, though do not for the c17s. I do think it is interesting that SA's website also carries Thomson seat posts...both models offered are setback, for whatever that's worth.
