Thanks for the link to that thread - v interesting. A shame the open Nidd didn't work out for you in the end. I hadn't heard of the Berthoud - I'll have a look online for those.

Here they are https://www.spacycles.co.uk/m18b0s204p0 ... es-Leather. The Marie Blanque is the shorter version of the Aravis / Aspin but not stocked in an open version although it does exist https://berthoudcycles.fr/en/563-leathe ... tural.html and I expect that Spa can order one. It's a big investment and best deferred until you are sure that it's the right width for you and less expensive saddles don't work.
Usually riding a Spa Cycles Aubisque or a Rohloff-equipped Spa Cycles Elan Ti

Thanks. Definitely an 'investment' item alright...one for further down the line if at all. They look great, though.

Selle Italia seem to do a facility called 'idmatch' which might help; I have not used them, as I have been lucky enough to know what saddle works for me, but it might be worth a try?
