I have the Brooks Champion Flyer "S" -- the "S" stands for "short." It's supposed to be especially good for women and I happen to be female. However, after about two months and at least 200 miles, it is really uncomfortable.
I started off with a level saddle. There was too much pressure in front so I lowered the horn a notch. Still too much pressure so I lowered it again. Now the front feels fine but lowering the front has caused the back to tilt up slightly and that back edge of the saddle is cutting across my rear, leaving me alternately numb and in pain. I'll be honest -- I have a large rear and I feel like I'm hanging over this saddle on the back and the sides. Now I find myself tilting forward in order to take pressure off the back.
I bought the saddle at Wallingford and they posted on their site on October 3 that they will be back in business soon. So I need to decide if I should ask for a wider and/or longer saddle or is this still part of the breaking-in process? Thanks!
