I've got a Brooks Cambium C17 saddle, and as others have noted (see "long term experience" heading), the fabric covering has worn through the seat of my pants from abrasion and has resulted in one pair of pants tearing just a few weeks after riding on this saddle.
Does anyone have a good remedy for this?
I'm considering a rain cover like so, but I'm not sure how long that would last before it tears through as well.
I wrote an email to Brooks about a recommendation for the problem, but I've yet to hear back.
My seat height is such that my legs are almost fully extended at the bottom of the pedal stroke. I have not noticed this problem on other saddles.
The pants that wore through (and I have another pair of the same pants that is wearing thin in the seat as well) are Dockers Life Khakis like this - a cotton / polyester blend that has been fairly durable in my years riding in other saddles.
