Well, the latest in the saga with the Brooks Imperial Saddle is that Wiggle have replaced the faulty item which is good, the bad news is that the replacement saddle was also faulty, which is bad.

The suggestion from Wiggle customer services is that they may have a faulty batch and to their great credit they have asked me to return the saddle and they will then check the latest replacement personally before sending it out.

So, the latest saddle is now all packaged up and ready to be sent off to Wiggle, I'll keep you posted but in the meantime if you buy a Brooks Saddle make sure it's straight, they are NOT meant to be wonky!

Here's the photo of the replacement I was sent, a distinct droop of the hide on the right.
