Brooks B17 Special
Brooks has been making high quality leather saddles in England since forever. They look great and the ride well too. Many a cyclist who has had trouble with synthetic contemporary saddles have found comfort and reliability with a Brooks.
The Brooks B-17 is the most popular leather saddle for general all purpose riding, whether it is touring, commuting, mixed terrain, brevets, or just rambling around by bicycle. The B-17 Special is the upgraded version to the standard B-17. It has thicker leather with skived edges. The rails are copper plated steel, and the machine set steel rivets are replaced with hand hammered copper rivets. The B-17 Special generally rides best when the handlebars are level or near level with the saddle. The B-17 Special also has two bag loops built into the saddle for mounting a traditional transverse saddlebag, like a Carradice.
The B-17 Special comes in Honey or Black.
