    Just to note, Brooks saddles are a thief magnet so try to ensure that any of interest on eBay are being legitimately sold!

    Oh yes I know the designs all differ but you can see in a photo if it would suit or its your style. :smile:

    I’d look through the description ask lots of questions about it to determine provenance like any potentially stolen item.

    But not all Brooks styles would be a suitable width. What if the ones you like aren’t the size you are looking for?

    Isn't it the case that Brooks saddles only work for one person and that a second hand one, already "broken in" as it were, would be immensely uncomfortable for any posterior other than the one involved in the breaking in process?

    New baby bike?

    I'd keep your bikes away from one another.

    Do you know @biggs682 of all the bikes I've had since 2010 I am more excited about this one than just about all the bikes I've had.

    That is decent advice, though to me fair might be tricky. Buyer "Is that saddle stolen?" Seller "Scouts honour guvnor!"

    Could do better ... I found some of my school reports from 50 years ago and "could do better" seemed to crop up in the comments section from the principal with monotonous regularity. As did "needs to pay greater attention". I like Boon's approach to developing a better rant as the day progresses/it all gets too much.
