Got my brand new Brooks B17 Narrow saddle today in the mail, put it on my bike and immediately went for a ride. Kind of felt like sitting on a rock, but after riding to the park and back it had already started getting much more comfortable.
Brooks saddle appreciation thread?
Also, what are some good products to use on it? I read that the proofide doesn't really do much of anything great other than lightly moisturize the leather. It didn't come with any, so was going to get some but a lot of people suggested other stuff. Mink Oil, Olive Oil, Vasoline, personal lubrication, hair conditioner, even used motor oil was suggested. Not saying the proofide is bad, just exploring all the options before I commit to $25 for a tiny little canister of gel.

Okay /n/,regular /o/ plebeian here.
I have a 2001? Gary Fisher Big Sur w/ fully adjustable shocks, panaracrer tires, fresh brakes, etc.
But I was kindof wondering if there was any way to change my bike, make it more customized, better for the trails? (I need new grips as well, some suggestions would be nice)
Also just general tips/ things to do would be appreciated.
