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...
I have for sale a brooks cambium c17 in the slate finish. It's been out on about 5 rides and is like new, I'm selling it as I have replaced it with a specialized romin to match my main bike. Looking for £52 posted.
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...
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...
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...
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...
Just to let you all know if interested, Amazon have the Brooks Mens Flyer in Honey colour on their site for £58 !! I looked at it for ages before buying one as it seemed too cheap, and I can't believe it's a fake - the pictures seem to be the standard Brooks ones (which means nothing I know)...
Selling this lovely Brooks Conquest in dark brown with large copper rivets.
This is the original Conquest and not the re-made version currently for sale at Brooks.
Will come with a tin of proofide.
It is in amazing condition with no drying or cracking.
£65 including 1st class P & P to...
I have a Giant Defy Advanced pro 1 (2017) with a D shape seat post. At the saddle attachment point it indicates that the saddle rails must be 9mm. diameter. My B17 Brooks saddle rails are 6 (or 7?) mm. Consequently the saddle rails moves on the locking attachment. Has anyone any suggestion how...
I've gone back to my B17 leather so I'm not really using the Cambium. Although it's used it's still in good condition.
If you're interested I'd sell mine for £60 plus p&p (approx £5) or you could collect from Hove or we could negotiate..
I have just bought a 1952 Raleigh Lenton Sport with its original Brooks B15 saddle still in usable condition , tried reproofing it with proofied but a lot of black came off on the cloth , it looks like it may have had boot polish put on it or perhaps going black with age is normal if it is...
Brooks B17 Aged saddle with tin of proofhide and spanner.
Carradice saddle bag support, not the quick release version
Carradice Original Pendle Saddle bag.
Simple question: why are the rails so short? The saddle, bought originally for touring on the Brompton, doesn't go back far enough as the adjustable part rails aren't long enough.
Anyone find a solution, or, more likely, another comfortable saddle which can be adjusted to go back further?
I’m considering buying a Brooks B17 S Imperial saddle to go on my touring bike and I’m wondering how comfortable I would find the 176mm width.
My current saddles are 143mm as my sit bones are quite narrow.
Would 176mm chaff?
Are there any ladies who ride with this saddle who could shed a...
This is for one of my neighbours - what it says, brand new B17 never fitted to a bike - but unboxed.
He wants £50 for it + postage or collect from Strtaford-upon-Avon - he says no offers and I think he means it!
For sale is my much loved Surly Disc Trucker, It’s an absolute beast of a bike and a blast to ride! However, it’s simply not getting the use it once did and I’d much rather someone else was riding and enjoying it than it simply gathers dust in the spare room!
It would make the perfect commuter...
While ive been waiting for the paint to harden on the rudge ulster ive had a rummage through the disgrace i call a garage. Ive found a brooks professional!
Alas. Its gone a bit weird.
Its sides have flaired out .
Any ideas how to get it back to its original shape?
I am on tour across the USA and have met up with a couple we have cycled with for weeks. We have a day off today and identified a problem we need to resolve
One of them has a Brooks B17 saddle bolt problem
The bolt has slipped through the U shaped holder and can't be forced back
Sorry, can not...
Just wondering, as my Brooks saddle is in need of some TLC.. Local shop has Cherry Blossom Dubbin for £1 for a small tin. Proofide - I would have to order on line and is about £8 for a similar sized tin.
I’m guessing this is a Brooks Professional - what do you think? It’s off the 1965 Holdsworth Mistral skip treasure. I’ve cleaned the rivets with brass restorer and applied a bit of Pecards to the leather and I’m leaving it to soak in. There’s an odd clamped bracket at the back of the seat which...
