Hi all, sorry if I'm plowing old ground here...
I'm thinking of getting a Brooks and looking for input, feedback, kudos, red flags, whatever. I recognize that they take a bit to break in and that they aren't the lightest, but I am planning to be riding for years to come and I'm not and will not be a racer so the fractional weight differences from plastic don't matter that much.
I will be putting the new saddle on a Trek Pilot 5.0 that I ride about an hour a day after work most days and 2+ hours a day on the weekends (there are other things going on in life too). As noted I don't race and I don't ride in mass group rides, at least I haven't yet and the thought doesn't really appeal to me. I enjoy the quiet Zen-like me, the bike, and the road feeling. A bunch of other bikers wouldn't enhace that for me.
I've been pondering Brooks website and the selection seems to be the Team Professional, the Swift, and the B17. Suggestions? Alternatives I should look at?
Thanks in advance. Jim
