Looking for a really narrow saddle with good clearance for big legs - I find the old Brooks Swallow a comfy saddle but want something contemporary - any suggestions for things to look at?
The Swallow has a fairly long narrow nose and flares out fairly quickly to a wide 'seat'
Many thanks

Specialized makes the Toupe Pro in 130mm.

There's not much padding but the shell has some flex.

Check out the Kontact saddles. I just got one and like it a lot so far.
