Hey, I hear wonderful things about brooks saddles. My only problem is that I live in the puget sound area where we get alot of rain. I understand that you shouldn't ride your brooks when wet. I also understand that the brooks leather can stain your clothing.
I plan on riding in the rain quite often (commuting to work) so I'm worried about the saddle getting wet and me not having any options because I've got to ride to get to work. Also, lunch time... I'll be on the bike in my work clothes... so, I don't want to walk back into the office with stains on pants.
What alternatives would you suggest for a good comfortable saddle that can be used for long days on the bike as well as daily commuting? I saw an earlier thread which suggested a Specialized saddle.
