So being budget minded and being a cyclist is usually a losing proposition. You buy the cheapest stuff the first time - which isn't really all that "cheap" - then it breaks / doesn't work right and you are faced with buying the right / better / thing that works.
So somehow in the flurry of WANTING a Brooks bad, my dad and I managed to get ourselves a great price. On the Professional S.
In the excitement I didn't put this together. I got it last night, applied the Proofide like a good Brooks drone should, installed and mounted it. TAINT CRUSHER.
Got the nose down a little further and went on a 10-miler this morning to test it out. Obviously the new leather was a little rough on the sit-bones but altogether better than before.
Now I'm the moron here so I don't feel right about trying to get the company I got it from to refund my money. They provided their end of the deal. And putting the proofide on there...still its doesn't feel at all bad on the 'bad spot' but I did notice some discomfort if I slid too far (particularly during shifts).
I will post a pic later, maybe you guys could advise on making this work. Or not...
PS - I've heard the S is just "small", which makes sense because it looks sort of tiny. Fortunately I'm pretty light in the trunk currently.
