Brooks B17 Special Green with Copper Rails
Multiple seat positions will be adopted during trekking and touring cycling. Although the rider may stand up from the seat when increased speed or greater control is desired, he will normally sit for most of the time, needing a saddle which is wider than those in our sports range.

The B17 is Brook's flagship model, ideal for long distance sportive touring, trekking and atb use. It has been on the market for over 100 years, being featured in as early as the 1898 catalogue. The model is available for gents and ladies (B17 S) in different versions: the B17 and B17 S Standard feature black steel rails, the B17 Special features chrome plated steel metalwork, and the B17 Titanium - Both the B17 Special and the Titanium also feature hand hammered copper rivets.

Ownership: a month

Pros

Saddle looks awesome and is well built.

Cons

Saddle requires a long break-in period.

Other Thoughts

After conducting quite a bit of research on bicycle saddles I decided to purchase the Brooks B-17 Special. I purchased it with the knowledge that it requires a longer than average break-in period.

At this time I have 220 miles on it. Most of my rides were 10 mile rides, but the last 3 rides were 20 miles each. The first 2 rides were uncomfortable and I took a day off. The next ride was better. The rides have gradually become much better and it appears that the saddle will be as comfortable as expected.

At this point I am happy with my purchase and see no reason why it shouldn't become as comfortable as those who have all ready broken theirs in, said they are.

Width

Men's saddles tend to have a narrower seat and longer nose than corresponding women's versions.

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.

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.
