Ostensibly, B17s are 177 mm wide from leather edge to leather edge. But with a 140 mm sit bone width (I'm 6'3", 225 lbs), I couldn't figure out why I couldn't get comfortable on a B17, B17 Imperial,...

When I picked up my Power Expert 155, I asked the salesman at the bike shop about the difference between the Power and the Arc. He said, “Everyone who likes the Power hates the Arc.”

Update: Specialized Power

Spring 2018: after going through several more saddles hunting for perfection, I ended up with a 155 mm Specialized Power Expert. This saddle is amazing. Those 3 cm missing off the nose make all the...

I know this is an old thread, but I can't let Rowlett's -- my favorite Richmond LBS -- suffer this review without response. Even though I didn't buy my bike -- a Trek 2.3 -- from this store, the...
