I just put a new-ish B.17 on my bike. I’m always telling people to try their Brooks saddle with the nose “up” just a little so I thought I’d show what “nose up” means to me.
This setting is my starting place. There will be tweaks as I ride and as the saddle breaks in.
When you set the nose up like this you are more likely to sit on the “seat” part of the saddle. Often we can be pulled forward, reaching for the bars, until we are more on the nose than we should be. The nose of the saddle is narrow and hard. No comfort there.
The bag is a new model from Detroit Cargo that I am evaluating.
