if you don't mind me asking, what sort of build is your wife? i have pretty small hips so i could probably even get away with using a saddle designed for males. perhaps my problems with the saddle on my new bike is that it's too wide!!

i've had some funny experiences with shorts. i have a pair of castelli bib shorts that i don't use when i ride kew boulevard. i didn't realise how much road vibration there was on there until i wore them and they couldn't cope. but they're great on the longer rides on a smoother surface. i use a pair of rather battered gel shorts for kew boulevard and hardly notice the vibration.
