I really dig my Brooks, but i want MORE

I have been loving my B17 for the week or so that I have had it but I want something even more supple and tender. Is there anyone making saddles out of seal skin? Maybe something with bald eagle feathers? I'd even take infant bellies, I just want something supple to ride on, maybe I am just crazy. Or maybe I just love my taint.

After a few hundred miles your brooks will mold to your butt and be more comfy.

That's what I heard anyways...still breaking mine in.

I prefer my saddles to be made of nothing less than unicorn. In a pinch I like to fashion a saddle bone and hatred.

Other then that the only thing comfier than a Brooks saddle would be an older Brooks saddle.

If your taint hurts, it sounds like you don't really dig your Brooks. Or you shouldn't.

I made an excellent cover for my Brooks Professional out of soft spots, at TimArchy's suggestion.

The best seat to keep from getting a sore taint is a seat made of like material. Remove the leather from an old Brooks and stretch stitched-together taints on the frame rails. I'm sure some people here can help source a few taints or at the very least post a link to a taint supplier.
