I got a SALE flier from Nashbar a few weeks ago, they were having a big sale on saddles and the Brookes B-17 caught my eye. Since I've heard nothing but raves about it, I decided to pop for it to see what all the fuss is about. The first thing I noticed was it's slicker than snot on a glass doorknob, as they say. And the second thing is it's hard as a rock! But I also have read it needs to be ridden a few times to break it in etc. So I've put a couple hundred miles on it, adjusted it up, down, nose up, nose down, forward and backwards...I can't get it to feel good for more than 5 miles. The numbness in the prostate area is terrible. So the bottom line is it's sitting on the shelf with a half dozen other uncomfortable saddles, although this on is a little more expensive, and I don't know how much more time or effort I can give it.
Anyone have any wisdom on why I'm having such a problem with this supposedly "most comfortable" saddle?
