Brooks Be Gone

Today, I reluctantly removed the Brooks saddle from my Surly...
Why would I do such a thing?

Was it because of style?  Absolutely not!  The Brooks is classy and gorgeous.

Was it because of comfort?  No way!  My Brooks is just that - mine.  It conforms perfectly to my butt and is by far, the most comfortable saddle I've ever sat on - bar none.

The reason for the switch is really quite simple.  The Surly has become my go-to, commuting steed. The perfectly seasoned Brooks saddle stamps a nice brown stain on the posterior region of my britches.  Trust me, this definitely distracts from my sex appeal.  To avoid said distraction, I am forced to wear lycra to and from work.  While such attire is certainly sexy on my perfectly formed glutes, I prefer to be more subtle.  Furthermore, I am forced into the hassle of carrying a changing of clothes to and from work.  Of course, there is another option to avoid the big brown stain...
...a big brown bag.  So much for style and comfort.  It was time to make the switch to a more functional saddle for commuting...
Now it's back to riding in plain clothes.

- no more big brown stain!
- no more carrying a changing of clothes!!
- no more cheesy seat cover!!!
- no more being the cause for countless women lusting in their heart!!!!
