    “Measure the distance between the centre of the two dimples, and then look for a saddle designed for that width of sit bones.”

    I thought you were supposed to then add 2-4cm depending on cycling discipline?

    My sit bones are 10cm apart, centre to centre, there are no saddles that narrow.
