Convince me...what's so great about a Brooks?
As "pushy" as that title sounds, I've been contemplating a switch to a Brooks B.17...however, I have some doubts.
So, I'd like to hear a few more opinions. I'm not unhappy with my saddle, so the Brooks would really have to be the best thing since sliced bread if I'm to shell out that cash.
What do I see as the cons?
I can't ride it in the rain without a "sleeve" that goes over it, which is a pain, I think, for commuting.
There's a line of rivets going through a ridge right down the center...umm...that looks like it could prove most uncomfortable in some very bad ways.
There doesn't appear to be any "anatomical" recession in the design.
In spite of this, so many people here seem to drool over them, I thought I would make an inquiry.
