    2020 Brooks saddles, a question on hide quality.

    I own three Brooks professional bought in the 70's and maybe 1981. They are all to my liking and I need another this year to build another bike. I took a look around the net today and my eyes are almost bleeding from the ill and uninformed bo**ox I have found, mainly Brooks vs Selle Italia...

    Do women also experience Brooks love?

    I have read several threads in which most posters rave about Brooks saddles. My wife is considering the B17 short (the “women’s model”) now. Its lack of a cutout makes me wonder: do women revere Brooks saddles the way men do, or did I fail to realize most Brooks fans/fanatics are men? I invite...

    To Brooks, or not Brooks?

    Hi. Having decided to cherish my old but immaculate Pioneer Trail rather than upscale, my mind has turned to the question of saddles. At the moment I'm doing a leisurely 10km every couple of days, so nothing earth shattering, but I've fancied a Brooks saddle ever since starting riding again...

    Brooks renovation

    Long story, but I have been swapping saddles on a few bikes recently. It left my Raleigh Competition without a saddle, so I started browsing eBay but people want too much for old tatty Brooks saddles. So I thought it may be an idea to have a go at renovating an old B15 which I picked up a few...

    Brooks tension nut slipping

    The tension nut on my road bike’s B17 slowly turns under tension - and my weight - resulting in excessive sagging. Any tips to stop this?

    Brooks saddle failure

    I bought a Sun Snipe Bike in 1962. It was fitted with a Brooks B17 saddle which outlived the bike by many years and has been in more or less constant use on a series of other bikes for almost 60 years . Sadly however I think it has come to the end of the road as the leather has started to split...

    Brooks saddle failure.

    Can you beat a Brooks saddle ? Well - It's looks like you can. This Brooks B5N was fitted to my Carlton road bike in the early 1970s (possibly the 1960s). I soon got used to it and used it for years, until the bike got laid up in the garage about 35 years ago. A friend of mine had borrowed it...

    Brooks brown leather Pickwick bag, 26L.

    Impulse buy that now will not get any use. Tiny mark on the front from a note stuck to it with sellotape otherwise in perfect condition, it still has that beautiful leather smell. It has a separate padded laptop compartment, I had planned to use it for daily commute but my circumstances have...

    Brooks Saddle

    Would anyone know the age of this Brooks B90/3 saddle please. Not seen the Brooks logo written like this so guessing it’s an early one?

    Any Brooks experts?

    While browsing in one of the local bike shops that sell used bikes from Europe and the US I spied a very dirty and dusty Brooks saddle. I asked the owner how much he wanted for it and he said 2Ocedis (about £3) so I took it. It’s a Swift, but the sides seem to have moved out a little. Can this...

    Brooks Flyer - noisy

    A few months ago I decided to try out a Brooks Flyer on my hybrid bike, having previously had a B17. It was fine at first, but recently had developed a horrible, loud, creaking noise from (I think) the springs. I've tried a bit of oil but it seems to make no difference. Is this normal for...

    Brooks Cambium saddles - ?

    I use my Dawes Fox to commute during these sunny days, but having been so used to the B.17 on my 'regular' commuting bike, in comparison, the Viscount VRT on my Dawes is now less than comfy over distance. :dry: As the Dawes is only used during the summer on alternate weeks, there's no point in...

    Breaking in a Brooks Saddle

    I'm fitting a brand new black Brooks Swift saddle to my restored Holdsworth Mistral and must confess I've never owned a Brooks.........would be very grateful for advice on any pre-treatment to the leather that will improve water resistance and perhaps help "break in." I've a horrible feeling the...

    Brooks Cambium equivalent to Swallow

    I bought a Brooks Swallow to compliment the build I did of a Classic Raleigh frame. I chose it based on its width being basically the same (153mm v 155mm) of my Specialized Romin Evo Pro; a saddle that was chosen (with guidance) as suiting my arse and riding profile. The thing is, with less...

    Is this Brooks dead?

    Tear right through to underside, not a surface crack (which will usually heal with Proofide and use). Ebay photos didn't show it clearly and it's not mentioned in the description.

    Breaking in a Brooks...

    My brooks Flyer has arrived. Happiness reigns. Next question: is it wise to put it on the bike ready for a hopefully 100k ride on Wednesday? On the one hand I don't have a Brooks shaped backside, but on the other my last saddle broke in way faster as soon as I started making longer rides...
