As many members have, I have several Brooks saddles, I have always used when possible Brooks Proofide, I had a good supply of the orig Proofide in the Red cans, but ran out (still have the cans!) got some of the new stuff from Nashbar, completely different in Colour texture SMELL! etc, PLUS the new cans now have on the lid the Ingredients. I was surprised, Tallow, Cod Oil, Vegetable oil, Paraffin wax,Bees wax, Citronella oil. Does any member know if this the same mix as the orig ? I did NOT think that oils are good for bike saddles, Paraffin is GOOD I do know that, in fact wax is good, any one have any comments on this? Have Brooks after ALL these years found something new that should work better? or is this the same as the orig? I tried a Google could not find any info.
