I switched several years ago from Brooks B-17 which I had ridden on
for years on several bikes. i had issues with decomposition of B-17s
over time to where they became uncomfortable - even with the "Select"
version. Also, I found as I began to ride in a more forward leaning
manner (lowered my bars for more comfort, contrary to what is often
preached here), the B-17 shape didn't work for me.
So I switched to Berthoud and have been happy as a clam ever since.
I've been riding the Aspin now for about 3 years. Better quality
(thicker, stiffer leather; no hamered rivets to eventually dig into
ones backside as the leather around the rivet wears; completely
rebuildable saddle because the saddle is bolted to the rails, not
hammered in. Just a better design, in my opinion.
Caveat: it took me 500 miles to break the saddle to where riding
anything more than 20 miles was comfortable. But, after 3 years, the
saddle is broken, but not broken. Just thicker, stiffer material that
will last much longer, I am sure. Highly recommended.
It takes me about 500 miles to break in an Aspin, too. I presume you
mean "broken in but not broken" - and that's very true.
