I have one thanks to my bro' Dale Brown. Fantastic from the first day. There was no break in as far as I'm concerned. A little Proofhide and ready to go. Rode fifty miles the first day and I felt wonderful. I switched back to my Selle Italia on my track bike for spin training and hurt within 10 miles. PLUS it looks FANTASTIC on my Litespeed.

Unfortunately I'm off the bike for a few weeks with a fractured tibia. OUCH!!!!!!!!!

How comfortable is the new Brooks Swallow, the one recreated by Brooks base d on the 1936 design, and how long does it take to break-in? It feels really stiff out of the box!
