Couldn't be said better. Don't worry about style, just about what works.

From a looks standpoint, it would look terrible!

Now, what more important to you. Looks or that BROOKS saddle?

Why BROOKS? Do you prefer full leather saddles? Width and shape?
If its due to shape and size, find a saddle that replicates the model you want.

If you must use the BROOKS, then go for it! Its your choice, your bike. If its the most comfortable and you will ride more, then go for it.

You go Brooks, and it is likely you'll eventually never want to ride a Plastic-Bik again.
Yeah right!

My plastic ride with a thin, plastic and lorica saddle feels just as nice and smooth as my steel ride with a BROOKS Swift and 25mm tires!

How about looks and a BROOKS on carbon?

when I find another saddle that I can ride 50 miles without as much as standing up on the pedals for a butt break, then I'll put one on here

There is a thread in the Lounge detailing the "OEH Hill Climb"

Take a look through it. ChiliconCarnage was there with his Look ( 565??) with a white An-Atomica on it.

Looked dynamite.

Really.

like they said....the saddle doesn't really show when you are on it...EXCEPT the metal BROOKS plate on the rear. That is guaranteed to tick someone off as you pass their weight weenie 14 pound bike....
