Willie Dixon said it best: "I'm built for comfort, not for speed..."
I'm changing my saddle. Brooks saddles are classics, and I like them. I have two of them. The one on my Tikit now is absolutely terrific for fast commute-distance rides... but after doing some significant miles recently, I see a change coming. After 30+ mile ride, that great little saddle leaves me feeling like I sat on wasp nest.
The other saddle (above) is lovely soft leather, like an old baseball glove. By comparison it feels like sinking into a fine, fine armchair. Head and sit bones agree: it's time for a swap.
