    Holy smokes...thanks everyone for your input! Still seems like a pretty confusing thing but at least now I've got some clue, LOL.
    What's truly meaningless is when you look at saddles on eBay or Craigslist, and people keep giving you the measurement from D-ring to D-ring. What on Earth is that supposed to be good for?

    Not a lot! As you correctly surmise, it depends how high or low the Ds are fitted. The lower they are the greater the apparent width

    It might give a very, VERY rough comparison guide against an existing saddle but that's about it.
