I soooo want a brown leather Brooks saddle and matching leather handlebar tape. I've already paid $90 for a Specialized saddle more appropriate for my fat butt, but with over 200 miles on the Specialized, I feel like I'm wasting time that could have been spent breaking in a Brooks leather seat.
Is a Brooks seat what they're cracked up to be, or simply something that traditionalists praise?
Do they come in different sizes, or is it a "one size fits all" sorta thang?
Given as how it's going on a "touring" road bike with drop down bars, which one should I avoid from considering..... for fear of getting the model with TOO MANY springs....??
Who is a good source from whom to buy.... seat & matching leather tape.... at a competitve price?
Thanks in advance,
