Most comfortable saddle I've ever owned
Kerry Lyman on 12/25/06
I always shied away from leather saddles because of the reputed and infamous "break in" period. Too bad, because after buying a Brooks saddle, I can say all that "break in" stuff is nonsense. This is the most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden...FROM THE FIRST DAY I MOUNTED IT ON MY BIKE! Wish I had the wisdom to try a Brooks saddle 25 or 30 years ago. Before this purchase, I always rode semi-firm gel-filled saddles, which I THOUGHT were comfortable until I purchased my Brooks saddle. Brooks makes my old gel saddle feel like a spike. I know. It is counter intuitive. But the hard-feeling Brooks saddle is MUCH more comfortable than a relatively soft feeling gel saddle. Go figure! But it's true.
