    Cool! I got it from Primal Wear's outlet. It's one of my very favorite jerseys. I picked that one because it has the largest/deepest pockets of any of my jerseys. And it's so comfy. It was a good pick, yesterday, since it's also very visible on a dreary day.

    The 155. I tried the mid-sie (143?) and it was a little too narrow for my sitbones. I loved the shape of the Aspide, but I need a cutout for comfort. I'm about to purchase an Aspide Glamour Arrowhead. Hopefully, it will be "the one" for me as I'm really sick of saddle shopping (this will be my 5th or 6th saddle).

    Ahh...I just answered my question to your post.

    *fingers-crossed* that the arrowhead version works for you!

    repost:
    I am having trouble finding a T-shaped saddle for my 130mm sit bones. The SI Turbomatica was T-shaped enough though too narrow for me. The SSM Aspide Glamour Arrowhead on the first ride was T-shaped enough though I had quite a bit of pressure up front. On the second ride I brought the nose down a bit and up front felt better though on the right side where my butt and leg meet, that crease, the edge of the saddle has rubbed quite a bit. The second ride was longer though I could tell there was a problem 15 miles into the ride. I am puzzled that bringing the nose down just a few degrees would cause such a difference with the comfort at the back of my leg. I am considering either bringing the nose up a bit or moving the saddle back just a bit. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Hmmm...that is weird. I would definitely keep playing with position, some. Also, is it possible your leg is hitting the seat-post clamp? Mine does on my cyclocross bike with this saddle (all saddles, really, but especially this one).

    I am having great success with the arrowhead K and actually had the nose a little up past level. It is working out well, take a tool with you and play.

    Sarah: If you're in the Twin Cities area I suggest that you might want to try getting a basic bike fit at Erik's. It is well worth the price. As far as T-shaped saddles, I have had success with the Specialized Jett previously and now the Ruby. Good luck!
