Not only did the Planner Guy throw (with the help of my cousin Angie) a surprise party for my 50th birthday but he also presented with a beautiful Brooks saddle (B18 Lady) from their Unique collection. I'll attach it, or rather the bike shops guys at Slippery Pig will, to my Breezer Uptown 8. I took both bike and saddle to Slippery Pig yesterday to have it installed but was greeted with a chorus of "Wait until this summer!" They explained that it's too cold (yes, it does get cold, or at least chilly in Phoenix during the winter) to properly break in the leather saddle and that riding will not be a comfortable experience for some time. They recommended waiting until this summer to mount it to my Breezer, treating the saddle first with the prescribed conditioner and letting it soak in the sun between applications. They said that in the summer heat, my saddle will be broken in for riding pleasure within two days. I will defer to their greater wisdom, as they all have Brooks saddles on their bikes. If anyone else has any Brooks saddle wisdom, your thoughts would be appreciated too.
