I'll skip most of the backstory other than to say that I've found my Brooks b17s to be the best saddles I've owned. When my bride/stoker finally admitted that both of her thrones were tolerable AT BEST, we got her a b67s. After some tweaking of the position, she too preferred it to anything else... And we were close to getting her a second one.
Butt wait... (here is where we cut to the chase)
I ordered her a Selle An-Anatomica Titanico.
She was out of town when it arrived so I "tested" it on my road bike. Bad captain, bad.
Bride/stoker came home on Sunday and yesterday I transferred the Titanico to the stoker position on the Cannondale. She thought it looked like I had the nose tilted up a bit too much, but at our first stop she asked me to raise it just a bit more.
It' been my habit, every 2-3 miles, to call "coast" and allow her to 'adjust'.
Not any more! Her response now is "not me- I'm fine!"
Knowing how much I enjoyed my "test rides" on her new saddle, she INSISTED that I order one for myself. Darn.
Think I'll keep her for another 25 years....
PS -- Selle An-Atomica is having a sale on selected colors -- you might want to take a look.
