I am so jealous of all you Brooks zealots. I want this saddle nirvana, yet it alludes me. I've tried playing with the for/aft, height, etc. to no avail. I am in the, "if the shoes aren't comfortable when you first put them on they never will be" camp. But could i be wrong? can this thing be broken in? I'm getting desperate since my Terry Fly is the closest I've come to saddle happiness--having tried many other varieties--but i still get occasional numbness. I don't get numb with the brooks, but it's been murder on the sit-bones thus far. I am now considering the selle smp strike, but the price is terrifying. anyone have any long distance experience with it?
