Changing saddle rails

Horses for courses. I put the black seat on last night and don't like it.

Conversely i think it looks massively old fashioned :laugh:

One the major bugbears I had with older Bromptons is just how old fashioned they looked.

The Brooks leather saddle, the Navy Blue, Racing Green and Red always looked like old-fashioned colours and the powder coated finish made them look dull. When the newer, brighter colours came out it coincided with me needing to replace my previous folder and I was sold. I do also think the black editions look more modern, the black just seems fresher than brightwork, hence when things have work out or needed replacing I've tended to go for black edition parts. I didn't necessarily set out to make mine lime/black, it's just ended up that way.

However, I do think people must think I've always had that in mind as my summer shoes are black with bright yellow. And my spring/summer gloves are also lime green with black. But I literally just bought whatever was on offer when I needed to.

Feels like I'm obsessed.
