Part of an old Brooks Tradition

Well, I prefer to ride long distances with my (3) bikes (not all the same time). With normal gel saddles it was a torture. 2 years ago, I monted the first brooks B 17aged. It was so excellent that I bought two others brooks for my another bikes. So I have two B17 aged and one Flyer. What should I say. Only one word: Great!!

I am tentative in my enthusiasm for I have only ridden my new B17S Aged twice at this point, BUT.....at first blush, I may have just saved my cycling life.



After three years of sit bone issues that have only become worse and worse with each year, the thought of sitting on the seat this Spring was sitting heavy on me. Guess it gets old to ride all day and think about nothing other than how much pain you are in - especially when your only cycling goal is to ride as long, as far, as adventurously in a day as your mind and body will allow.



After trying at least four saddles during the 2010 riding season, (and complaining to whomever would listen at my local bike shop every time I entered the store), I finally decided to break the barrier and try a Brooks. The barrier in my case wasn't actually financial (what's another chunk of coin when you have already wasted over $600 US on saddles that only exacerbated the problem?) The barrier in my case was psychological. When your sit bones are so sore that it takes a week to recover from each full day of riding - just looking at that firm, shiny surface incites complete terror.



BUT...I have started with the cheater model - the AGED B17S - and so far, it is true - COMFORT FROM DAY ONE! AND, I can actually still sit on a hard chair after I ride.



So....we'll see how it goes. I admit I still have some adjusting to do to get fully comfy in the saddle. In part this is due to having my bottom highly padded up to protect the sit bones and having extraneous bulk in the middle of the saddle. You get the picture.



BUT, if I can ride this saddle comfortably and am actually able to continue cycling (I have been long distance riding for more than 20 years and never had any problems until I started riding road bike seats) then this saddle will be the equivalent of a bloody miracle!

I am thinking of buying one of these maybe to put on a Brompton as I don't use it much so wouldn't get the opportunity to break in. Are the holes underneath meant to be laced? Would this saddle be more comfortable than the Ladies Imperial saddle.



Unfortunately I don't want to risk putting either my Ladies B17 or B17 aged (if I buy it) on bikes until after October, when I hope to enter a Cycletta event. I do get saddle sore and I'd rather not be under any more pressure than I have to.

Question: Okay, dummy that I am I got all slap happy with the Proofide on the TOP of my AGED B17S BEFORE reading the directions (surely I can't be the only idiot who has done this....??). What will happen now - something terrible? Will it flatten into a pancake? Turn into a waffle? Disappear like one of the witches? Please tell me I haven't ruined it already. I am excited beyond belief at this point with the two test rides I have done that I can't bear the thought of having ruined my beautiful new seat. Thanks! Jacki
A> chances are you have not ruined your saddle, unless you used the entire can.  You absolutely may apply Proofide to the top of your saddle, but usually wait until the saddle has had some wear before doing so, and apply sparingly.

To proofide an aged saddle or Not? There area few conflicting Q & A's in this topic. I just purchased the b17s aged saddle and would like to know if, when and where I should be applying proofide.
 
A> we recommend not using Proofide on our Aged Saddles
