"if you cant find the time to do something right first time - when will you find the time to do it right the second time "

Decided after trying several saddles to find an adequate comparison for either my original ti flites or my ouchterlonie modified flite ti and failing miserably despite trying Specialised alias - comp , Selle italia flite SLR 135 , Prologo Nago and team pas , Several WTB numbers and some bontragers i just havnt found anything that fits well.
comfiest saddle i own. Keeping it for ultra long distance events now as its getting severally worn and the chap that made it is no longer local - local being the same land mass.
My latest quest for a comfortable saddle - at least for my training bike has brought me to brooks of england. Now i know you all think these saddles are only to be ridden on audaxes by men with beards. So what - good enough for men who can ride all day and all night - sleep for 20 mins in a bus stop and go again. Sounds like a saddle that i should have on my bike no doubt !

This now lives on the tricross i bought a month or so ago. Done 60kms on it tonight straight out the box with a light proofiding. So far its proving to be the correct shape and fairly comfortable. With no pain after getting off the bike as has become the norm of late after similar distance on some of the saddles i mentioned above - other than the flites i have on some of my bikes , one of which ive ridden on all day ever day for 3 months with no ill effects - some of the others ive tried i cant even ride for 2 hours !
