Excellent, not for weight-weenies
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This saddle is sublimely comfortable for bikes that have a more upright seating position. If your stem is slammed, this thing will be far too wide, but on a touring bike it should be fine. I use it on my 'all-road' Rawland Ravn, and it is wonderful on gravel and dirt roads. It is VERY heavy, but I honestly never cared about weight (as an aside, why is it that, in the gym, the person who can lift the most is to be admired while, on a bike, the person with the lightest bike is king?)
Note that this is a B17 with springs. If you like the way the B17 feels, then this saddle will be even better. Note that you will have to oil the springs periodically, or it will sqeak.
