I bought one of these a few weeks back & have now developed my first saddle sores ever (in over 35 years of cycling). 2 of the rivets at the back of the saddle were raised, so bit into my fundament every time I cycled.
Several forums recommend working the rivets into shape with a ball-peen hammer, but I would rather just return the item & spend my €86.80 on a saddle that will work out of the box.

Проехал на этом седле больше 5000 км. Ездил за раз по 5 часов. Моя пятая точка просто в восторге ) Главное вытерпеть первые 100 км пока седло приобретёт форму.

Have ridden on B-17 Narrow since the 1980s. Yes, you read that right! The same saddle, and it is without doubt the best and most comfortable saddle I have ever tried. Started off on a 531-tubing touring bike, and is now on my MX-4 commuter bike.
Yes, it's heavier than a skinny bum-chafer, but it'll outlast them all.
Bought a second one a few years ago for my new mountain bike - didn't take long to break in, and is now as comfortable as the original.
Do use the Brooks wax - the saddle really appreciates it, especially if you ride in the rain.
You will not regret the investment!

Just completed the twelfth thousandth mile on a B-17 narrow. Cant really see beyond these saddles any more, most of my mates are all on fiziks/selle italias etc. and I get some stick for the old skool looks but I'll never go back to the hype of 'gel'. The first few weeks is a little tough but then the saddle forms to suit you. A great product that looks fantastic, even on a modern bike.

When first on the bike the saddle was as hard as nails; but after some treatment with the Brooks cream it's really soft. Have now ridden my first 1000 miles on it and it gets more comfy as time goes by. Longest ride to date is 170k/7 hours no problem at all. Will soon be getting another one for my best bike.

Brutal el diseño y la calidad de los materiales. Cumple con las espectativas que se esperan de los Brooks.
