If your supplier has a saddle without a ridge -- i would suspect that
must clearly be better ( no possibility of a problem ) -- but I am
very happy with my Brooks- my cycling includes 300K audax and some big
Alpine climbs -- Galibier etc.

So -- get a swop if you can -- but I do not think sticking with it
will cause problems.
