My ass would swallow that little thing.  That being said, a buddy of mine was a big XC racer, and had that same saddle.  He loved it, but again he wasn't 200+.  What's the worst that can happen if you buy one......hmmmm.  I guess having it surgically removed from your anal sphincter would be a little unnerving. :o  Good luck!

P.S.  he raced a Blur Classic, but now races skinny tires.

Along those same lines, I really like my WTB Silverado. Doesn't appear to have enough saddle there to be comfortable but is the best fitting saddle I have tried for my posterior :) Bigger is not always more comfy ;)

A few guys I ride with have that saddle and like it. I had one and hated it. I do like my Nisene though, I even got 3 of them for all my bikes.

I forgot that I road with a new saddle this weekend and loved it - it was a WTB rocket V

I think they make a carbon/titanium lightweight version of that

(yes, I am being a weight weenie on the new bike)

Rocket V SLT, 210g choice of color and stitching.  I have one on my Ells, best seat I have ever owned. 
Rocket V Team, 240g same confort less bling factor.  I rode one of these on my Blur for 2 1/2 years very durable.  I have also ridden the silverado and the devo.  They are both a bit more narrow and have less padding.  For 20 grams get a rocket v slt, far more comfortable and the kevlar corners on the back will last a lot longer too.

This is the saddle I was planning to get, I'm 215 so a little skimpy saddle is not going to cut it.

For the price, it seems like it is worth a try.

I have to retract my former statement. I had one of the older Gobi saddles and didn't like it. The new bike came with one of the newer ones and I decided to give it a try, it is alot better than the older one.
