StarStarStarStarStar A sturdier B17

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Holds shape
Cool (subjective) patina develops

Cons

Picks up color from shorts

Other Thoughts

I had a Brooks Flyer Special become hopelessly deformed after a few years rendering it extremely uncomfortable. After researching on the web, I discovered that this is a fairly common issue with more lately produced Brooks saddles. Apparently the leather is too thin or too weak. The B17 select is hard as a rock and visibly thicker than other B17s. After a thousand miles, it still retains its shape wonderfully. Because the leather is untanned, it develops a unique patina with use. Mine is now more of a Brooks "honey" color with a lot of variegation. It always draws comments in a good way. It's my favorite saddle by far.

StarStarStarStarStar Natural finish acquires a great patina over time.

by
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Comfortable, custom fit. Natural finish acquires a great patina over time. Great for high mileage riders.

Cons

Fenders a must in rain to protect leather. Also use rain cover. Heavier than normal seats. Several months break in period, but the comfort to follow is worth it. Not for people who share their bikes.

Other Thoughts

Great product overall. Installed on my mountain and touring bikes. A bit expensive, but good things cost money.

Width

We categorize usage into three styles - BMX, racing and recreation. Racing saddles tend to be narrower and be more firm than recreation saddles. Recreation saddles are usually a better fit if you plan to ride upright and they may include features like springs.

Women's saddles tend to have a wider seat and shorter nose than corresponding men's versions.

Saddle color is usually the predominant color of the saddle. But, for predominantly black or white saddles it is usually the color of accents or highlights.
