Hello Wayne, nice to hear from other Cannondale T2000 riders. I have used a Brooks B17 in the past on other bikes so when I got my new 2007 T2000 it was my intention to replace the stock saddle ( Fi'zi:k Rodine Mg ) with a new B17. I thought that I would give the stock saddle a chance and as far as I am concerned after several thousand kilometers, the stock saddle works for me as well as my B17 did. I really didn,t notice that the B17 was better than the Fi'zi:k saddle so I'm not changing. Although Brooks B17 are great saddles they are not for everyone. I ruined a B17 a few years ago by riding it in the rain too much, but when you are touring and it's raining everything gets wet. For comparison I am 6'1" 230 lbs. but and I tend to ride in a more upright position so I tend to have more weight on the saddle than I normally would and my B17 worked well for me.
Happy saddle hunting and touring.
