But as part of the fitting, I was presented some compelling evidence that saddles like the old Brooks B-17 that I had broken in over the past couple of years can cause some, ah, serious numbness and, over prolonged use, even damage to, ah, a very important part of my anatomy.
So I bought a new saddle. Iíve had no symptoms or problems with the Brooks

Which is more compelling:
a) LBS' presentation of evidence purporting anatomical damage?
b) Your personal experience which proves otherwise?

I've got over 6000 miles in the past 18 months on Brooks saddles (B-17 Champ. Std. and B-17 Imperial), and there's no problems with my dangly bits.
