I have ridden two other Pro saddles and one B17N so I am familiar with the fit and feel. For some reason everything changed with this one. The touring frame is significantly different from any other bike I have with much more relaxed frame angles, and I specifically designed it to properly support a Brooks saddle in the middle of the rails, not slammed fore or aft like most people run them on modern frames.
Yes, the post was dropped about 10mm, that was the etc. part of that sentence. Regardless of what changed, it is a perfect fit and simply comfortable like the Turbo saddle. I was just surprised when I did this because the C17 saddle I tried did not require these changes. Too bad it was too wide for my liking because that was very comfy! Fortunately the Pro Select came into my possession as NOS and was given to me by a friend. Is the B17N even offered any more?
