Just curious... What saddle is that? Hope you'll like it. $650 sounds like a very good deal.

I don't think it'll make that much of a difference, but it does depend. I think bigger is always better though, so I'd go for it. :)

Ride more, worry less.

I prefer a little bigger. Also, since you are not showing in it, you could always use a tush cush on it and that would take up a little more room. And it will give you room to change position a little if you are on a longer ride.

I rode once, in my friend's 16" saddle, and that was way too small for me. I couldn't get a correct position and my legs were a mess..

I'm hoping once I have a saddle that fits me, my position will correct itself.

I wouldn't think there would be a HUGE difference with just the .5"... if you're getting one .5 larger.
