I just put a B17 on my Specialized Roubaix.and I have mixed feelings about how it looks. I just ordered some tan handlebar tape to take some of the focus off the tan saddle on a blue and white bike and to give it a more balanced look. I had a very narrow saddle on the bike until yesterday and I was wondering if this will effect my cadence or getting low into the drops. I would try it out now, but I just had foot surgery, so all I can do is look right now. I always thought the Brooks saddle would look like snow tires on a sports car, but it doesn't look to bad. If I knew I was going to put a Brooks on the Roubaix I probably would have gone with the black, but I have the tan one and it really stands out. Anyhow, what do you touring riders think. I do have a touring bike setup with a Brooks as well and I wonder if I just shouldn't keep the Roubaix for my road/sports bike.
