Is this true? I'm seriously considering one after having tried most/all the Specialized range with no luck.
I've got another brand or two to try yet but test saddles are limited around here so I'm not hopeful and it seems few buy Brooks and complain!
It's true that many ride on well broken in Brooks saddles with ordinary street clothes.
But be warned that despite the multitude of aficionados, like other saddles Brooks don't work for everybody.
You probably have a better chance of finding comfort on a Brooks though - if you choose the right model, and have the persistence to break it in.
