The Rivendell site says that you need to tighten the A-A before riding, but they claim after the initial tightening they hold their shape well.

The current version of A-A is narrower -- Brooks Professional width (I prefer the B17 width). The current version of A-A is longer than B17 with MUCH longer rails. Current A-A is very, very soft and requires tightening before you ride. To me it felt as if it was designed for crotch-sitting rather than seat bone-sitting and I do not like that. It may work well for others.

I've seen this saddle, I think most recently up at the Frame builders show. I'm curious if anyone has recent experience with their models. I believe some earlier versions were 'updated' to what they now offer.
