On the CX side of things.... saw this and other images posted of Eli Iserbitys' Ridley on cxmagazine
Another intersting choice - he is using women's type saddle Power Mimic:

Have to admit his setup seems to be working pretty well thus far, but with that seat post height, wondering how tall is he? :lol:

Before the Mimic the Spesh women's saddle was the Power Comp or Pro/S-Works, which is nice but those sharp edges along the middle surely isn't for all males.
If PCS is correct Iserbyt is 165 cm (sorry didn't see your post Bda). His rather well known ex gf is a couple of cm taller I read.

Ridleys are sized odd. My A and B bikes for cross racing were both Ridleys and for anyone not comfortable with massive saddle to bar drop they are hard to fit. Betsema has gone the opposite direction of Iserbyts setup and gone smaller frame with more seatpost exposed and 3cm of spacers under the stem. They really need to update their frame geometry. The interesting thing about that picture is I was running that exact seatpost on my cross bikes and for the life of my could not get the clamp to stay tight on saddle rails. I'm 64.5kg. Actually have one of those seatposts for sale in nice condition.

Preaching to the choir. Before I 'retired' from racing, I had a pair of Ridley X-Nights with integrated seat masts, for which I also had to size down, but that had the added benefit of slightly lighter frames.

No saddles are for everyone. I do know quite a few blokes who really like the Mimic range though.
