Re: [RC] saddle twist - Barbara McCrary

On the opposite side of twist width is my problem.  Too narrow a twist will cause severe and painful rubbing in the crotch, but a slightly wider twist will allow the pressure to be on the outside points of the pelvis.  I guess each person has his own anatomical issues.

Robert. Here is a site that tells a bit about what the twist is. My husband is more comfortable in a saddle with a narrow twist, as it does not spread his pelvis as much, and then in turn, he does not have knee pain. We would have never thought knee pain could be associated with how wide the saddle is to the rider, but once he got a narrow twist, the pain was greatly reduced.
