    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 flyer special leather bike saddle - brown.

    Treated and fitted but never used. I've sold my touring bike and this, sadly has to go as it just won't suit my MTB. New & boxed. It took me ages to get hold of this as everyone is out of stock even when they say they aren't ! Collection preferred but I will post to standard UK post codes...

    Left sit bone slipping off saddle

    Right got a bloody weird issue and it's driving me insane. I don't know if this is a new issue or an issue I've just realised, either way, I don't know what could cause it and how to fix it. The issue is, my right sit bone is firmly on the saddle, but my left sit bone is slipping off, I've even...

    Saddle Adjustment

    Hi there I think I've set my saddle far too high. I've taken my bike to the bike shop where I bought it and let them do it because I'm too scared to do it myself having heard horror stories about damage carbon frames/carbon seatposts, etc and this particular bike is not cheap. To put you in...

    Bike saddle

    Afternoon all My daughter has a white plastic bike saddle but the dye from her jeans transfers on to it and it’s a nightmare to clean off and since she’s pretty much riding everyday it’s getting tedious!! 😂 I’m thinking if either covering it in fablon? Or a piece of faux leather material...

    topeak saddle bag clip bolt f25?

    Hi all, This might be quite an esoteric question but this forum might be the best place to start. The bolt that holds the clip on my topeak saddle bag has rounded, due mainly to me swapping saddles, and as the clip and bag are still in good order all I need is the bolt. is it possible to source...

    Creaking / clicking saddle..

    Something I've experienced on pretty much every bike I've owned to some extent - a creaking / clicking coming from the saddle when pedalling / riding over rough ground, that upon further inspection can be replicated by applying downward load to the outside rear of the saddle on either side. I...

    Charge Spoon saddles...

    I'm considering changing the saddle on my Boardman as its less-than-stellar rep has been bourne out by my own experiences..

    Replacement saddle to seatpost clamp

    Hi, there are plenty of seatpost clamps out there for the post to the frame, but harder to filter these out to get to seatpost to saddle clamps. I have had a Deda Drittisimo seatpost since about 2013, and they use basically two M6 bolts: Over time there has been so much gunk and dirt in the top...

    TT Saddle

    Evening. I've got one of those stubby saddles on my bike ( basically a Fizik copy) which is quite comfortable, except for the fact that I have to keep adjusting my arse because I keep sliding forward on it. I read before that Andre Griepel used to put sand paper on his saddle to prevent this...

    I tried a Toupe Sport and it still feels like too much of my middle-meat has pressure on it, and not enough on my sit bones. I've tried angling the saddle and moving back and forth and nothing seems to improve it. So any suggestions on saddles I could try that either have a flatter...

    Specialized Power saddle too wide?

    Anybody got one of these and finding it too wide? Here are pictures of the San Marco saddle on my hooligan bike, which is extremely comfortable and the saddle on the new Roubaix, which is a good shape fore and aft but I'm thinking too wide in the middle as it causes folding and rucking up of the...
