Turns out I'm not crazy! I'm considering the same thing.
Ha! That makes 3 of us!
I need a width around the same as my Arione.
I'm not too handy and was thinking of taking it to an upholstery shop to have the cover removed and reglued.
When I took a look at the underside, it looked like you might ruin the integrity of the shell by shaving too much material away from the sides. It is quite wide where the rails attach to the shell.
I went from 5.5cm to 4.2cm from nose to BB centre. Sitting on the saddle whilst riding there is definitely more of the saddle nose visible in front of my crotch compared to the Toupe.
The other difference I noticed was that saddle height measured from the pedal axle along the seat tube to the top of the seat is about 4mm lower with the Romin compared to the Toupe. I set my saddles up level from nose to end and put this height difference down to the greater curve front-to-back with the Romin.
Tried the Evo out on a 4.5 hour ride Saturday- definitely feels different. Slightly less firm (but not soft at all) and the nose feels more comfortable. Giving it a run this week before going back to my Toupe.
I've tried other saddles in the meantime and keep going back to the Toupe even though it gives me slight saddle sores sometimes.
Did any Romin Evo Expert owner happen to weight their saddle?
My 143mm Evo Expert weights 232G, quite a big difference from the claimed 205G.
I bought it online, so I am just wondering if they sent me a fake one....
