Jane, I am one (male) who was unable to ride my Brooks B17 Special. After much advise from fellow forum members on adjustments etc I ran into medical issues that I just had to pass it on to a friend. Beautiful saddle.
However, my wife now has a Brooks B17S (woman's version) and she loves it. It is the only saddle she has been comfortable riding. She is still in a break in period but has told me she loves it.
Just thought I'd throw this in.
If your medical issue was prostrate, Monarch Leather in Wisconsin will put a prostrate friendly cut out in. Monarch Leather is the manufacturer for Selle AnAtomica saddles. Contact Selle AnAtomica for details.
Has she had a fit using a qualified bike-fit professional? Most of these types of problems can me alleviated with a good bike fit.
Last time I checked, Monarch Leather, the leather vendor to SA was charging $100 to cut a Brooks, so buying a Brooks saddle and sending it to Monarch Leather is an expensive way to go.
My question is how do most of you find the time to ride across the U.S. with full time jobs and mortgages and the rest of the responsibilities of everyday life. I have a dream to cycle across the country but don't have 3 months to take off. Thanks Jim
Saw your post in the Classified section and it seems taking a 65 lb dog and
1. Bike Tow Leash or Springer America
2. A water resistant blanket such as Tuffo brand with carrying case.
3. Water Proof Seal Line Bags for food.
4. Sleeping Bag for doggy.
5. Clothes and padded doggy shoes
goes against the minimalist and lightweight touring frame of mind...
I think you're over-thinking things - analysis paralysis! B-17 or B-67? Pick one, order it from wallbike.com, and try it. If you like it, you're done. If not, return it (for a full refund) and try the other one.
