    Actually, the best advice I got for how to start setting up a Brooks is with the NOSE level, as opposed to the entire saddle being level. That places the rear slightly higher. This works really well for keeping the nose out of my soft tissues, at least with my Brooks Finesse. But, we are all different, as Mimi rides with her nose up.

    What is this? I'm waiting on delivery of my Ruby Comp, my first road bike, and I'm worried about the saddle. It seemed OK for the test rides but you never know.

    Specialized dealers just have this little gel-type pad that they put on a hard surface, and then you sit on. It indents where your sit bones are, and it makes it quick and easy to measure the width. It is free, quick and easy.
