I used to be Brooks only and I still am to a certain extant however I'm starting to be uncomfortable on any of them. I think it must be be an age thing.

I am ready to swap my Specialized Power Curve and this Brooks B17 has been recommended by many. So a leather seat really is better than gel seats? On a roadbike?

I have one of those wide gel seats that support a porkers padded backside.🤗
Satisfied with it? Nope but then not riding is not an option.🤗
