Just curious, how many miles can you expect from a saddle? I've put about 3,800 miles since last year on the saddle that came with my new ride (specialized avatar.) Lately, it seems that the left side spring is creaking and groaning a bit, even to the point of giving a bit. I'm wondering if it's about ready to give up the ghost, but after only two seasons? Maybe it's the 215 lbs that stresses it every weekend that's the culprit?
I heard that Brooks saddles last a lifetime - maybe it's time to try one?
