Is it hard? Yes...at first.
Is it 'made' for everybody? Like anything that has a 'fit,' probably not.
I don't keep track of miles, but I've had this for about 8 months [riding 40 minutes each way to work, 5 - 6 days a week] and it began feeling comfortable after about a month and a half. At first, I had sharp nerve pain on one side, but once the seat position was adjusted that pain went away and never returned.
I'm 5'4"-ish [female], average weight and the men's B17 works for me. I'm more slim-hipped than most women, so it probably wouldn't be for every female. For me, it's well worth every penny. I had been using cushy seat covers for years--cheaper in the short term, but they slip and slide plus the gel gets wonky after a few months. Why not put that time on the bike in custom forming a great leather saddle that [over time] molds to *your* individual bum?
What a differemce this B17 Standard saddle has made on my ride. Wow wow wow!!! They say "only mileage can break this saddle in" and this is true. But let me tell you I am a 5'2" female weighing in about 125 measley pounds and it only took 4 rides (roughly 50 miles) before it started feeling cushy!!!! Granted I ride my bike with a backpack stuffed with my laptop and chemistry text book. But it feels amazing after having broken it in! I now prefer my bike to be my choice of transport. I use my car only when I had decided to sleep in a little bit longer. But I cannot stress what a difference this little saddle has made! You won't regret it.
