    Just got my Turbomatic (thanks Muirenn!). Tomorrow's ride will tell, but initial observations - it's much more crowned than my Jett, so the effective width is narrower than the 153mm spec. The width is a little borderline for me. At the transition from seat to nose, it flares a bit from top to "skirt." It is a bit more T-shaped than the Jett, but not by a lot - mostly the pictures create that impression because the Turbomatic's nose is a much greater proportion of its overall length than the Jett's.

    And it's hard. Whoah. I'm keeping my Allen wrenches handy, wearing one of my more padded pairs of shorts, and we'll see what 56 miles on it does to me tomorrow.

    Are you sure you want to do a ride of that length on a new saddle?
