Got my Brooks yesterday! Naturally, the first thing I had to do was fumble the bike after a dismount, giving me a nice dime-sized roadburn on the saddle's corner and also scratching my handlebar with the keys I had been holding.
This saddle is about the same comfort level as the vinyl/foam saddle that I had been using. It's definitely better than my stock saddle though. Very heavy and WIDE, but that's ok for me (maybe once I loose some weight I will upgrade to a Flyer).
The first thing I noticed riding was how slippery the saddle's surface is. Will that lessen with use?
The second thing I noticed was the fact that my crotch was NOT getting smashed by anything.
The third thing I noticed was the feel of the springs under me. Those springs DO make a difference! Not bouncy, but whenever I hit a bump or crack on the pavement it felt soft instead of hard.
And fourth, the saddle just looks awesome on my bike.
