Based on recommendations here and elsewhere, I'm considering ordering the Selle SMP TRK saddle. My sit bones are about 135mm apart. The men's version of the saddle is 160mm wide, and the women's is 177mm wide. Looking at the saddle, the high point of each side is well off the edge of the saddle. If I went with the 160mm men's saddle, it looks to me like my bones would be off the high point, and out near the edge of the saddle. On the women's version, it looks like my sit bones might be right up on the high point.

Which would you recommend and why? See photo.
