It just fits like a glove. I bought a Specialized saddle to replace the bikes original. This replacement would have cost me about £140 but was thrown in with the bike at purchase.
I assume that this Charge Spoon just fits as rode one on my MT B since 2010 so hint end already worn in.
I assume you have gone to a proper bike shop and they have put you on a saddle measuring device to check the width of your seat bones. You must have already tried adjusting the saddle for reach and tilt etc.
When I tried the old MTB Spoon on my bike I felt it was nose down by about 3 -5 mm. So fitted the new Spoon at about 3 mm upward tilt almost perfect. May play about with it but first I must buy new padded shorts or and bib shorts.
You are doing very well to be able to get 140 miles each week.
That would be almost impossible for me because of where we live on the bottom edge of the Yorkshire Dales.
If we lived back In Knaresborough it would be different.
However I only have time for two or maybe three bike rides per week. Too much on and not yet fit enough to do more.
I can only get the miles in when on holiday.
To be honest I get bored riding the same routes, I do have a 11.5 mile training route which usually ends up Hammer Time on any of my 3 bikes.
I love my MTB because I dont have to go far and love the hill climbing off road. Knaresborough was ideal for that as I used to go up to Ripon almost all off road on old coach road, bridal paths and across fields.
However due to the lockdown etc my MTB has hardly been used since start of 2020.
