(take the tone of Mum and Dad) Don't roll your eyes at me young man!!!

Actually, the Brooks saddle hasn't been discussed in the MTB forum since I have been around here. I don't spend any time in other forums. I don't want a Commuter's opinion on a saddle that will be on my MTB. I want a MTB'ers opinion. Thank you for yours though. I don't control my bike very much via the saddle. When I'm on the trail, I don't spend much time in the saddle...too much climbing around here. Occasionally, I spend a little "saddle time" on some smoother trails around, but not generally.

I have a sticky butt anyway.

Seriously...I appreciate your opinion on how slick it is. Makes me wonder how well it would work out b/c sometimes I wear lycra, sometimes I wear baggy's.
