I'm not a big fan of my C13 (mine is in the B15/C15 145mm size).
In cold weather, it was hard. Rubber is like that
Getting on the thing, I was thinking - it feels like a new leather saddle, but it will never feel better than this. Hmmm.
Several months later I've got some chafing from the saddle - inner thigh as mentioned above (from longer rides). Guess I will have to wear lycra tights with this seat on rides more than an hour.
Got back on my B15 for a nice 3 hour ride, and it felt so, so, so comfortable.
I drank the koolaid, and believed the articles. My Cambium to me feels like a new, un-broken-in leather brooks, and there is no comparison to a seasoned leather brooks. For that matter, my Fizik Aliante is lighter, cheaper, and more comfortable than the Carbon Brooks.
I love the I drank the kool aid remark. I have the Brooks Imperial with the cut out. Yes mine has lots of sag in but it was really abused with tons of water on it without a cover. It's still a very comfortable saddle though. Mine felt broke in from day one as I rode a 300k on it first ride. Zman
If it was easy it wouldn't be a memory. You just hope you don't have all your memories in the same ride. been there dun that Zman
