StarStarStarStarStar Brooks B17 Standard Aged Saddle

Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high


Brooks makes high quality saddles that never seem to go away. They are beautiful to look at and once broken in, provide a great ride. They also require more care and time to keep nice, but the time is well worth it. They always seem to draw attention for those in the know. I use a separate seat post/saddle arrangement as I break in the saddle and switch out until the saddle is broken in. I found the B17 the most comfortable (so far) and the easiest and fastest to break in.


These saddles are not for light weight racing bikes. They are best suited for those who sport/tour and are not concerned with the weight. However, I get as much enjoyment out of riding a bike mounted with a brooks saddle as I do riding a racing bike, so it's a win- win situation.

Unparalleled craftship
Good weight


Not suited for swept-back handlebar-style riding

Other Thoughts

Unbelievable durability!
My sit-bones are slightly smaller than most adults and I prefer to ride a higher-upright touring bike with swept-back handlebars (Nitto Bosco). The saddle is not as wide for my style of riding and is not comfortable, thus, I use a Brooks b-67 and all my worries are gone (because I now ride pain-free).

Clamp Style



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.
