BROOKS CHAMPION FLYER - Anyone using one??

I am convinced by all the positive reviews that the Brooks is way to go, I am a big rider at 6'3 - 230.. I will be buying a B17 for my road bike but was looking for anyone using the Brooks Champion Flyer on a Mountain Bike??

Anyone have experience in using the Sprung Brooks saddles and did it help with rough roads on a Mountain Bike??

Hi,
I ordered one of those from Nasbar. It should get here this week. Next week I might be able to comment on it. I used a B17 Champion on a hybrid once; they are very nice saddles if the shape suits you.

I use the sprung B17 on my Bianchi Eros. It's heavy but worth it to me. Very comfortable once broken in. Squeaks a lot but I've gotten used to that. Drounds out the noise my knees make.

Ordered it from Nashbar on sale. Doubt I'd want one on my Hoo-Koo-E-Koo. RockShock seat post is better there.
