    Absolutely not. I even have different bottles for the bikes so they don't clash. Nope. Not a girl thang at all.
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    And really, about Brooks, I don't hate them but I do think they're overrated, sort of like the current batch of Martin guitars. And their fans are insufferable. I gave up on my Pro for a Unicanitor in 1976.

    Someone wrote that they found a DF seat that they could ride a whole hour without pain and numbness----------impressive!!!! I ride my bent for hours on end with no pain or numbness at all.

    Soneone else said he could invent a recumbent seat that would cause pain. Isnt that kind of silly. One of the main reasons that bent riders like their bents is the seats are comfortable.

    Yen, I think Oilman meant it costs $500 in the whole trial and error process, not the price of the saddle you finally settle on.

    You might want to try one of the allay saddles. See http://www.allaysaddles.com/?lkz=en They are modestly priced and work well for me anyway. Just another alternative that I think is worth trying if you haven't found anything you really like.

    I don't get it either. But there's this:

    A man walks in to the library and asks for a book on suicide.

    Amen, I have a B17, B17 narrow, and a B67. Through the years I have tried others but keep going back to the best - Brooks.
