I hated it after 100 yards, and 10 miles later I was of the same opinion. 100 miles on this thing is not gooing to do me any good. Put the B17 back on and was instantly reminded of why I've been using it for the last year.
Maybe the C15 will work a little better for me, but I'm not as eager to try it as I was. It's just a shame that the rails on the B17 are so short.
I had some vouchers to use, so bought a C15. It's not as wide or as bouncy as a C17, and it did work a little better for me. But it still felt too hard and uncomfortable; I could do 10-20 miles on it, but I never enjoyed sitting on it. Put the B17 back on, and once again noticed a marked increase in comfort instantly.
I might try a Nidd, and was tempted by a Gillers Berthoud (but that would probably also fall into the "too hard" category). I do need a second saddle - but perhaps I should put up with the B17's flaws, knowing there's nothing that suits me better.
