Specialized Dolce womens saddle

Mlle PB has been using the Dolce for a few years - has three in fact, one for the tourer, one for the audax and one for the tandem.   The tourer variant is near the end of its life and a replacement is needed.   A quick google and Bike24 have just what she wants, except...

" Unfortunately this item cannot be shipped outside Germany" - WTF!!!

Just recently, I replaced MrsC's original Dolce saddle with the new(er) spesh Women's BG Riva saddle - £25 from Evans. It seems to have gone down very well, though I'm not sure I'll get any further updates on it as it wears in...

Jedrik, that is a very kind offer.   Thank you.   I'll let you know in the next few days.

I think that I'm going to have to visit a shop with Spesh BG's in and compare.  I'll take along the old tatty one for reference...    :)

Another German shop seems to have them - doesn't seem to say anything about not shipping outside Germany.

I have a brand noo saddle from a spesh dolce comp (about 14 days old)  that may be acquired for a suitable donation to a charity. Any use?

This one perhaps?

That's the one I bought for MrsC's bike. She likes it.
