    My sit bones are very wide at 140mm. Right now I have a b17 select I am disappointed in as the 2 furthest rear rivets are hammered to the point of cuttingnthe leather and the leather seems stupidly soft. Ive already had to stretch it after only 9 moths. My old regular b17 took years to reach that point and was treated more poorly.


    So what saddles would you recommend for the wide sit boned person?

    You're going to need something wide and probably with a flatter profile to support such wide sit bones. Something like a specialized toupe 155.

    If you enjoyed your Brooks, you might give it a try.
