I know theres a million threads on Brook's Saddles, but I couldnt find the answer on this one.
I'm looking into doing some Brevet riding next season, and I need a good saddle to get me there. The question that I cant seem to find is this. I'm a very lightweight. I weight just a hair under 130lbs (though I am 6ft tall). Because of this, I dont have very wide hips. Now, I was considering a preaged B-17 because they are a little bit softer which logically this makes me believe they will be easier to break in (which Ive heard is a problem if you weigh less).
So, according to the width of a Brooks, can a normal B-17 work for someone like me? I typically ride with my saddle level with my bars. I'm slightly worried however that it may simply be too wide/hard to break in for someone my size.
Help anyone? Its a pretty big investment for me, so I cant really take chances here... I may just take the chance and go for the Wallbike special, but I like to support my local LBS and all that.
