The narrow nose of this saddle is great- no chafing. However, the rear is not as wide as you'd think with the measurement provided by Terry..... it is not a flat top seat- it is dome shaped, so it rides like a narrower seat. The Butterfly is a flat, wide rear saddle, for instance. So, if you're looking for a narrower version of the Butterfly, this would be a good saddle. I rode this Liberator saddle for a year, certainly gave it a fair try, and it felt comfortable while riding, but afterwards my butt and hips were in a lot of pain. Not for me.
