I use the B17 Standard for about 3 years now. Very satisfied with it. From the Brooks website, the B67 looks to be a little wider than the B17, 205 mm vs. 175 mm for the B17 Standard. Little differences in width can make a big difference. I tried the C17 Cambium, which is 162 mm and found I much preferred the B17.

Another B17 user here. I'm 6'6" and currently 318 lbs. It is by far the most comfortable saddle I have used in conjunction with padded bike shorts. About to order a new road bike and it will also have a B17.
