I'm not sure...it feels like strain...as though it's pressing too hard into me. I know I don't get that with a Brooks B-17 or a broken in Pro. The Regal is fine for one long ride a week...or several shorter ones...but I'm putting in over 100 a week right now, most of it on the Marnati, and the repeated riding is hurting and catching up to me.

Roger - they did make a White Brooks Pro, but good luck finding one. They made 250 and they were around $300 as I recall. I had the chance to buy one and didn't last year.
