    Oddly enough Jim is right.

    Terry saddles are wonderful. I ride the damselfly, it has a narrow profile than the most popular butterfly. The butterfly is wider, but not cushy. You don't want a soft saddle as that can cause more discomfort than you would think.

    Local shops also carry the Terry saddles. Not sure if others will post up, but they may and maybe you can workout a borrow to test the saddle. I have extra damselflys if she wanted to try one.

    I've tried to get my wife in to riding for years. Bought several bikes for her and many saddles. She said the Terry was the only one she could stand.

    Terry Butterfly...no excuse now for your ladies. Titanium rails available to bring down weight of that cushy asspad! Best ever...and now...with flames, for better or worse.
