It's all gone bronze
Anyone out there used one of those Selle SMP saddles, the big-gap-drop-nose ones? They look interesting, and I was wondering if anyone had any feedback. Larger riders, preferably, as I'm more of a Clydesdale roadie...

but i didn't get on with it to be honest. i tend to like a wide saddle but just didn't find the wings were the right shape for my backside. horses for course though.

I ride a couple of them. I started with the SMP4 Bike TRK (which is now relegated to the turbo trainer bike) and then changed to an SMP4Bike Hybrid for my everyday bike and SMP4Bike Pro for my better bikes
The advantages of the hybrid and pro, imo, are the narrower nose. Narrow enough to make for free and easy pedalling.
Also, I tend to sit forward on the saddle a lot when I am trying and 'the beak' is very comfortable in those circumstances.
You can read some of the science and see pretty much the full range at www.smpsaddle.co.uk

or, you could go to http://www.sellesmp.com/en/default.htm instead of bicyclerubber's shopping site...
