Where I buy my Brooks Cycle Saddles

Date Checked on: November 13, 2011

Qualities: Solace, Solace. Looks awesome on my ruler orange custom Waterford! I have the nectar calfskin with copper bolts.

Shortcomings: Must be softened up, should be kept up and coverered in the rain. Overwhelming in the event that you think about that.

Main concern:

Best seat I have ever claimed. Brooks Saddles from Terry Fly following a century where I abraded gravely. After a wear in time of a few hundred miles and watchful regard for the maker directions, I can ride throughout the day in total solace. Indeed you need to utilize the rain cover and keep up it yet I am an energetic change over!

Qualities: Solace!! Looks. Saddlebag circles. General quality. Wallbike merchandise exchange (you have a six month time for testing amid which you can restore the seat on the off chance that you don't care for it).

Shortcomings: Weight (I'm weighing 250# nowadays after a constrained cutback from bicycle riding because of an awful back so who thinks about weight?).

Main concern:

I experienced a few unique sorts of seats yet never discovered genuine solace until the point that I rode my B17 Streams. I treated it with Proofhide and it immediately formed to my sitbones shape. I've never been a better than average long separation rider yet I've accomplished more than 50 miles in a single day on my Creeks. Circles on back of seat are helpful for appending saddlebags. This seat is exceptionally delicate to tilt point and thus I suggest a two jolt microadjustable seatpost. It can't be slid back too far in the seatpost so you might need to utilize one with a little counterbalance. Investigate any long separation visiting bicycle, more than likely you will see a Rivulets saddle on it.

Qualities: Whole deal comfort. Quality. Straightforwardness. Exemplary style. Gets bunches of either inquiries or compliments from different cyclists.

Shortcomings: Substantial; not for gram counters. Might look a bit excessively retro on a few bicycles. Somewhat wide to race. Requires customary care and is helpless to water, esp. underneath.

Main concern:

Each rave about this seat has demonstrated valid for me, as well. For me it was agreeable practically out of the crate and the break-in period didn't appear to be long (two or three hundred miles, possibly). I utilize Proofide on it two or three times each year and coat the underside with Sno Seal to secure against street splash. It has a dart for tensioning as the cowhide extends with utilize, yet I haven't needed to complain with it yet. I additionally have one on my mountain bicycle; my lone grumbling there is that it's somewhat tricky when you're moving around the seat a great deal (i.e., specialized trails and such).

My Streams just shows signs of improvement with utilize. Nearly everybody who rides with me out of the blue has a remark about it, normally along the lines of "Man, you should be no-nonsense to ride on that thing." However once I clarify how it functions and bring up where it's formed to my sit-bones, the light goes on. It's a significant conviction-based move to attempt one, so I think I've just changed over one individual, yet neither of us would backpedal to a "customary" seat on the off chance that we have a decision.

I'd be enticed to attempt another smaller, lighter Creeks display in the event that I accomplished more aggressive riding, however the B17 Standard is about ideal for whatever else.

Qualities: Quality, comfort, looks; it will presumably outlive you.

Shortcomings: None

Main concern:

No contentions please. No open deliberation. This is the best seat there is. This is the best way to be really agreeable on a bicycle (aside from resting on a 'twisted). The finest quality, made by a decent manager in the English midlands. I just couldn't envision sitting on whatever else. Have a go at cycling from London to Istanbul, as I have done, on some other seat - absurd.

Date Checked on: December 26, 2010

Qualities: Solace, life span (a lifetime on the off chance that it is tended to), no more butt torment riding impediment.

Shortcomings: flighty to get balanced right, requires utilization of proofide and tensioning. Not by any means a hustling saddle, yet that is not by any means what it's intended for. Fine for rides where you don't should be on the nose.
