Any women tried this one?

On one bike, I have a Terry Butterfly that rocks. Very comfortable. When I bought a second bike, I thought no brainer get the same saddle. Despite the set up being the same, now tweaked, the stupid thing leaves my arse a bit sore after a ride.

Just one thing to consider if you end up with the aliante. I bought the carbon version thinking it looked cool but the titanium area on the rails where the seatpost attaches is small. Make sure it can be adjusted so you can get the proper placement over the bottom bracket. I have mine right on the edge of the carbon and its adjusted fine for me, but it wouldnt work for everyone. The aliante works better on this bony butted male than any other saddle by far.

Since there are women specific frames only, I expect the consequences for one's anatomy of riding the Aliante saddle to be similar for both sexes. Once in the correct position the Aliante is a fine saddle indeed. I think you should experiment with your position instead of assuming that it is interchangable with that of your old saddle. Cheers.
