I've read many accounts of just the opposite...that they stretch much MORE than a Brooks and people have bottomed out the adjuster after just a few years.

(I have four Brooks Professional saddles in use and haven't had to turn the adjuster bolt in years...but I cover them if it's going to get wet)
