The saddle dates from 2012....i am not the original owner and just bought it from another forum.....when i attached the saddle i noticed the front end is twisted see pics below.
I have had many Brooks saddles but no Ti ones......so a few questions [i intend contacting Brooks this week anyway]
[a] Is such twisting normal or is it unusual? [you can see the front top rivet is quite offset] [b] Is it safe or fatally flawed [nothing is loose]?[c] Can a LBS/Brooks easily untwist it? [d] Should i just leave it as it is and not concern myself with the twisted appearance?
Here you can see the bolt is angled and not straight
Here you can see the leather looks a bit twisted [saddle held straight on]...the rivet is not square on.
Here the rails don't look square in relation to the tension bolt.
Here you can see the rivet is not on straight..the front of the saddle looks like it has a curled lip...the saddle was pointing front and in line with the stem.
Another shot from the front.
When i set it up on the USE seatpost...i could use a spirit level and get the saddle to be level....so despite the nose being twisted the leather top is straight.....just the nose is twisted.
So, what do you think?
