    Brooks B17 or B17N?

    Is there a simple objective way to determine which saddle - B17 or B17N is best for a given . . . uh . . . undercarriage?

    Is it a matter of measuring the distance between the sit bones?

    Cheers!

    Jim

    I was wondering this too.. i'm a guy with a pretty skinny ass

    Back in my teenage years i used to use one of those Bontrager cutaway saddles on my mountain bike (you know, the really really really narrow ones), without a problem.

    I just ordered a B17 regular, however, for my Rivendell build. I figured it's probably more comfortable, and if i really hate it, i can probably trade it with someone!
