Brooks recommends that the wider saddles, like the B17, are intended for a more upright fit and should have the handlebar equal with the saddle or higher.
However, a wider saddle can work with a lower handlebar level if the cyclist is large enough to have widely spaced sit bones.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
