So a friend of mine gave me a used brooks swift. The only problem is that he used it on a 24hr mtb race durring a serious rainstorm. It has since dried and hasn't been used for a while. It doesn't look too bad, but you can tell its worn down. The tension bolt is in the halfway position. So there isn't alot of room left. I awlays thought these were firm saddles, but i can push this one down with my hand and the sides flare out. I rode it today and its comfortable but i think it should be firmer.
1. Should i tension it untill the sides don't flare?
2. Can i tie the bottom of the saddle so that it doesn't flare? (i heard something baout this but can't find any info)
3. Buy a brooks pro and start fresh?
