Im not a tourer, but i read this forum a bit, and notice there seem to be more brooks saddle lovers here!
I ordered a b17 standard honey a couple weeks ago from myLBS, and i just got to pick it up on saturday!
Must say im disappointed that the saddle did not include proofhide! The LBS owner said he was going to order me a smalll container at no charge (bonus 1)!!!!!!!
bonus 2:!! I didnt open the box until i got home, and someone made a booboo! Instead of my standard honey saddle, i got a b17 pre aged! Something im pretty pleased with!
I dont want to mess this saddle up, so im waiting until the proofhide comes in, and i will apply to the underside, i read not to apply it to the tops of the preaged models
