After searching for years to find the perfect saddle, I tend to find one I like then buy it for each of my bikes. A few years ago, I favored Terry Fly saddles. Then I moved on to Ergon SM3 saddles which I still use on a few bikes. After hearing about how well people like the new Brooks C15 Cambium saddles, I decided to try one myself. I bought it here because it was the lowest price online I could find and I like buying from Bike Tires Direct because of the VIP points toward future purchases.
After an initial ride with the Brooks C15 on my Surly Pugsley, I raised my seatpost nearly an inch and adjusted the angle of the saddle for the perfect fit. I'm now considering buying another Brooks C15 Cambium. This is comfortable, great looking saddle with Brooks brand quality.
Everyone has different saddle needs with that being said Brooks saddles have always worked well for me. I enjoy the fact that this saddle is very weather resistance and comfortable. I picked the carved version of this saddle to use when I raced the Trans Am. That saddle shows some ware but has held up quite well and is still in service.
It is great saddle, like with any other saddle you will need to spend some time to micro adjust it to your liking.
Once you get it dialed in, youll be very happy. It almost feel like the longer the ride the more comfortable the saddle gets!?
Great saddles ! it takes a little time to find your sweet spot thru micro adjustments ,once you do its magic ! Firm fore and aft where you need it yet compliant where you want it , plus looks killer ! Very fast shipping from BTD! And best price !
This is a great saddle. I have a version of the saddle on all my bikes(4). No break in time is needed. Over time and a lot of miles it will stretch a bit, but the comfort is still there. I would and have recommended it to many friends. it's not the lightest, but it is the most comfortable.
