Any women out there have advice for me on a comfortable saddle for x-c riding that is narrow enough that I can move behind it easily for downhills? At the bike shop they used their nifty butt impression thingy to determine what width saddle I need, and it said I should use a 143mm. I tried the Specialized Jett 143mm, and found it very comfortable, but it was too wide to easily slide between my legs to get in the downhilling behind-the-saddle position. Then I tried the 130mm Terry Damselfly, which I found very uncomfortable. Has anyone found a happy medium?
