This might be a lame question/observation...
First season on my new Brooks B17. It's getting comfortable (no complaints on "firmness"), but I'm always having to skootch my arse back onto the meat of the saddle. I already have the thing canted upwards; certainly more than I ever have on previous saddles (where "level" has always seemed normal and comfortable).
Canted too far up looks goofy, but if it's right and proper and good, I guess that's fine. (It only looks weird if you're not on it, right?)
So, maybe because Brooks are more "slippery" than other saddles, but, um, is that normal for these? (Yeah, I'm sure it's different for everyone, but share your experiences!)
A couple of comments on these, I've found in my research:
"The saddle must not be too high. This one made a lot of difference for me and not only with the Brooks. I had a tendency to set it up too high... as all the B17 based Brooks commands for the handlebars to be at least at saddle height."
The art of positioning a Brooks saddle...
I would NEVER have the handlebars at saddle height! That's just wrong. (For me anyway.)
Here's mine. I think the nose might be one more detent upwards since that photo.
