Where I stand (sit?) regarding the big saddle debate:

Capo: 1972 Brooks Pro, bought new and ridden more than 40K miles / 65K km so far
PKN-10E: ca. 1970 Brooks Competition
KOM-10: ca. 1980 Brooks Team Pro
UO-8: narrow padded vinyl Marin (ouch!) -- urgently needs a Brooks!
Bianchi: Serfas ARC anatomical, almost as good as Brooks

I use Proofhide, not water!
