Does that look a little, um, collapsed to you? To me, it looks as though it's collapsed either side of the cutaway.

It'd done around 4000km. No dimples/indentations at all, hard as new. Then I did a 400 and that's what it now looks like.

I was expecting sit bone indents... I wasn't quite anticipating that is should become more of a hammock shape!

To me it looks as if the cutaway area area of the seat has dropped. If you visualise a line from tip to tail, that's were the seat top was.

I'm not worried. I'm just asking for comments. Call it interest. Other peoples Brooks' may have done the same, I don't know.

If comfort becomes an issue then I'd talk to Brooks themselves. At the moment, I don't know if it is an issue.
