    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...

    Alternatives to Brooks saddle Proofhide

    What alternatives are there to the Proofhide for Brooks saddles? The stuff Brooks sell seems very pricey but there must be people putting wax into leather that isn't Brooks approved. Any suggestions?

    Brooks B17 or B17 narrow?

    Hi, I've ordered a bike and it comes with a Brooks b17 saddle. I have the option of swopping it for a brookes b17 narrow but I haven't sat on either and can't get to anywhere that has them in stock to compare I'm sure the b17 is very comfy but the narrow seems to be a shape I'm more used to...

    Brooks saddle sizing

    I've picked up a nice Raleigh SPD 531 frame that [owing to a rattle can spray job] is ripe for doing a post-modern restoration - New groupset etc, but keeping the look as retro as possible. This means I want my first, overdue, Brooks saddle but even the sportier numbers seem to be wide compared...

    Brooks saddle cracking

    So, about a decade ago I got a Brooks saddle. I am not one of those people blessed with a Brooks shaped backside, but eventually one of us broke the other in and it's been pretty comfy for much of the time. Only thing is I've noticed a few surface cracks. Nothing dramatic, just a couple of fine...

    SOLD!!! Very rare Brooks X Movember saddle... Any interest?

    As per pictures. Won by me in 2015 at Eroica Britannia. Couriered to me at home as we were not onsite for the draw. One of ten made. Immaculate condition. Would suit a bike shop or maybe a nice mancave. Should be displayed and be seen. Not sure of value but certainly a rare saddle. Will offer...

    Mouldy Brooks saddle. What to do?

    I keep a few bikes and other things in a lock up garage about a mile from home. I only pop in once every couple of months. It doesn't seem very damp but my Brooks B17 on an unused (mostly!) touring bike builds up a layer of green mould over that time. A wipe with a cloth sorts it. A much...
