As you can clearly see from this picture that seat actually isn't but a smidge wider than my racing saddle, yet what should be obvious from the low angle of the camera, makes all the difference in the world if you're a dude.
Had to take the bike in to replace the so-cheap-they-crumbled aluminum mid-brakes with a set of high-quality Origin8 Pro-Fit Cross Levers upon the bike shop owner's suggestion. They're also raked down for a more natural braking stance - I only wish I'd purchased the long-fingered cycling gloves when I was at the sports the store last week as we had a week of 30-degrees. I didn't buy them because we'd had a week of 80-degree weather.
Then it snowed.
