    Sheila...nothing short of awesome! Thank you from all of us for putting on that info together in one place. I'm more confused than ever, but I learned a TON! I think you use a Ruby on your road bike...are you still liking it? I've got a Jett 143 & I think it's a wee bit too padded & also too narrow. My LBS is of NO help figuring this little problem out. All I know is that it feels like my sitbones are on the outer edge of the saddle & my girly bits are getting a bit squished. Not too comfortable for sure.
    I aspire to be...the best I can be...the best I've ever been!

    I had the Toupe in a 143 before, it was too narrow just as you described. I'd recommend either the Ruby or Toupe in a 155. They are almost the same.

    The Phenom in a 155 is different. The cutout is smaller, and it is on my more upright bicycle. Need a larger cutout to go into the drops.

    I ordered the Ruby 155 directly from Specialized yesterday. They sent it out the same day & apparently they have a 30 day money back warranty. I hope this one works. If not...it's on to the toupe, etc. I'm so glad for that warranty just in case. Thanks again for the awesome knowledge & info!!!
