Qualities: In the wake of perusing many surveys, I purchased the Streams B17 Champion Standard to supplant fundamentally another seat on a current mountain bicycle buy. The stock seat was simply too delicate with an excessive amount of flex for my taste so despite the fact that the Streams line is to some degree costly, I chose the time had come to attempt one. Perhaps I'm simply used to a firmer seat on my bicycles be that as it may, for me, this B17 was ideal out of the crate. I followed the proposal from Rivulets and connected the Proofide before joining to my bicycle at that point rode around 15 miles to my 3 mile trail ride and rode home. I carried my device set and made a couple of minor changes en route yet it wasn't for comfort, simply getting it dialed in. Many Books clients have expressed that they had a few issues with the seat being tricky and I noticed that at first yet have no issues after around 50 miles in the seat. I surmise that will be an issue on any cowhide saddle. Additionally, numerous others have said they needed to put the nose marginally up on theB17 however for me, I set the nose and back of the seat level and it's ideal. I have around 200 miles on it now and it seems to adjust more to my posterior yet at the same time the most agreeable seat I've utilized! My bicycle accompanied a mishap seatpost so the rail length that others have had a few issues with wasn't an issue for me. I can't say enough in regards to the solace of this seat and will put a Rivulets of some sort on my other two bicycles when their seats require supplanted. Rivulets fan forever now!
Shortcomings: As others have expressed, the Streams line is expensive and, however I didn't have any issues, the seat rails are somewhat shorter than a few. The greater part of the Streams cowhide line is very substantial in contrast with the rest.
As expressed before, after this first buy of a fine cowhide saddle, I'm a Streams change over! It's craftsmanship and solace exceed the negatives of being expensive and modification issues some involvement. To the extent the weight, Creeks has lighter models on the off chance that I have to go lighter and will for my carbon bicycle.

Qualities: Solace, solace, and solace
Shortcomings: Overwhelming, rails have restricted modification contrasted with present day saddles, don't get it wet.
I've had my standard B-17 for two seasons now. Break in stories terrified me however was not an issue. Sensibly agreeable out of the crate, significantly more so after some time. The 3 vent gaps once in a while caused post ride disturbance for initial couple of months. A year ago I moved up to a top of the line carbon bicycle. The Rivulets appeared to be strange on it so I've demo'd a considerable measure of seats from that point forward (my child works at bicycle shop) and can't discover anything even near the solace of my Creeks. So my 16.5lb bicycle weighs 18lb now, I can live with that since I'm a vastly improved rider when agreeable.
I utilize evidence conceal a couple of times a season, to finish everything and base. I don't by and large ride in the rain, yet was on seven days in length visit the previous summer, and got captured in exuberant rain for a broadened timeframe. I had no choice yet to ride the wet seat, which cause a few injuries after some time. After that outing, the seat had extended yet I could hit the nail on the head back to shape with a couple of turns of the front jolt. The complete itself endured no effects.
I'm an adherent. Presently I respect any "razzing" from my riding pals for my hello there tech bicycle with 100 year old seat, since I realize what they don't.

Qualities: Performs entirely well. Agreeable out of the case
Shortcomings: Cost. Weight.
For the record: Yes, it rather unexpectedly softened up after around 30 hours of riding. No major ordeal in the event that you are one of those spandex folks. On the off chance that you are one of those spandex folks you most likely need a lighter seat. Somewhat more of an issue on the off chance that you are a short-pull suburbanite like me. Likewise, don't neglect this is a truly agreeable seat appropriate out of the container. A specific measure of effortlessly washed out recoloring left on my garments when I put the dressing on the seat.
I can't gripe, truly. My legs give out before my hiney now, and that is the general purpose. I won't supplant this thing at any point in the near future, if at any time. The cost is somewhat exploitative and still not shoddy notwithstanding when you get it on special as I did. There don't appear to be any valid thump offs around, and trust me, I looked.
