So as a reward to myself for existing, I purchased and installed on the bike a new Brooks B17n saddle. This after reading the multitude of glowing repts in many different forums and threads. I must rept that contrary to my expectations it does not fit like a glove. To this point the only dimples that I see are the ones I see in the mirror and I am not referring to dimples on my chin! Admittedly, I have less than 100 miles on the saddle and I'm still doing some tweaking. I have also ordered a Thomson elite seatpost both to help with the tweaking process and as another reward for existing. So I shall persevere with the hope that time and warmer weather, think spring, will cure all. Happy Thanksgiving to all-eat pie or die!
