Black Brooks: When does the black butt end?

I've been riding for two weeks and the dye still rubbing off all over my (formerly favorite) green pants. Everything I read said the stains would stop...but when? Is there anything I can do to make it stop faster?

I just recently got a black champion flyer and it never gave me the black butt. Maybe I am doing something wrong.

Black saddle. Black shorts. What problem?

Never had dye leakage from my black conquest either. I've never treated the top in any way. But the honey b-17 hasn't leaked either and I did put the teensiest bit of nikwax on the top of that one once.
