Sunday I opened the package containing my new Brooks B-17 Champion and wondered if
I had spent my hard earned money wisely. Not having a hammer in the house I immediately
thought if I needed to drive any nails the saddle would be a good instrument. Hard as a
rock. Harder, if thats possible.
After smearing on the requisite Proofide I installed the saddle and did ten miles between the
thunderstorms. What I noticed was that I didn't notice the saddle much. Monday I did a little
tilting and did another ten and noticed I didn't notice the saddle.
Today I did 25 and had my legs and time held out I could have done more. To some people if
may be fugly but it fits my butt and doesn't bother me at all. Admittedly, this if my first
saddle change but if this thing gets better, or doesn't get any worse, it if far better for
me than the stock Bontrager that came with my Trek 1200.
BROOKS B-17.............I understand. I understand. Where does the cult meet?
