So, I'm considering a new saddle to replace my Pave CP. Very comfy but I have the whole 'ergonomic cut' thing in the back of my head every time I ride. I'm looking at a Selle San Marco Aspide Arrowhead but have to wonder, who the H*LL is Dr. Robert West???

Don't know who Dr. West is and frankly I don't care. They probably made him up anyway and it's called marketing. ;)

However I have the saddle in question and it so far (1200km) seems to be a lot better for me than all the gel saddles I tried. For some reason gel made my nuts numb and this arrowhead thing doesn't. Then again no hard saddle has ever caused numbness for me just pain, only the soft and wider ones made me numb.

Other positive thing with Aspide Arrowhead is that it has no embroidery that eats through my expensive bibshorts.
