Everyone is in love with their Brooks, but I don't do leather. And probably wouldn't anyway on my commuter since it sits out in the weather all day when I'm at work, and I don't always remember to cover up the seat.
I read Sheldon's article on saddles, and I'm starting to see that maybe fatter, softer seats don't always make for a better ride, which might explain the fact that no matter how fat and soft my saddle gets, it never seems more comfortable than my original Schwinn seat that I did most of my original heavy riding on. Although that one, too, ran a little fat (but then, so does the associated part of my body ). So my latest fat, gel filled saddle is looking pretty ragged after a year of riding, and I'm thinking of making a more informed purchase this time around.
So, keeping away from leather (sorry, all you Brooksies), what do you find comfortable?
