a brooks takes a few (sometimes 100+) kms to break in by molding itself to your anatomy, so I would not give up quite yet. Somebody else breaking it in dosent count, as their anatomy is different!
Get yourself a standard seat tube, tighten the saddle down, and ride, man ride!
p.s: some say it is beneficial to actually wet the saddle a bit for the first few rides to allow it to mold itself to your backside quicker. Never had to do this myself. Never used anything but a B-17 either...
