But will it likely be comfortable ? Its as hard as wood !!


I "wood" imagine that it really depends on ones anatomy. I know that my crushed (by a pickup truck) sitting bone would not be able to tolerate that saddle for more than a minute. I never could get back to a Brooks saddle after the accident. But you or she should give it a try for the price, why not.
