Cons

(-) Price but is worth the money

Other Thoughts

I have ridden a Brooks B17 for years. It took about 700 miles to really break in for me. This B67 was perfect the moment I put it on my new fat bike. If you have the money I HIGHLY recommend this saddle.

StarStarStarStarStar Brooks B67s for women

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

This is simply the most elegant, highest quality, comfortable seat for women riding a "real" everyday, upright touring set up. It compliments my wife's 1975 Motobecane Grand Touring (her high school graduation present!) with NittoTechnomic stem/cromo Albatross upright bars perfectly. No backside numbness, or any discomfort whatsoever, gets better with use. Comfort trumps weight everyday in a touring configuration. She rides most days 15-20 miles. She has had Brooks on all her bikes, nothing else, for decades.

Cons

Carry a small plastic shopping bag always in case you get caught in rain...easy the seat has saddlebag loops.

StarStarStarStarStar The King of the Queens Saddle

Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Brooks standard of excellence is top notch. Great saddles (both mine and my wife's bikes now have Brooks saddlery.

Cons

To keep the leather supple and in good shape, they should be treated with a leather treatment every so often and before and after the seat gets wet.

Other Thoughts

Love these seats. Comfortable and very stylish!

StarStarStarStarStar Simply the best...

by
Ownership: one year
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Simply the most comfortable and durable middle-distance commuter saddle available.

Unlike modern performance saddles, it conforms to you after break-in. You don't have to buy 5 saddles to find one that fits perfectly.

Cons

Break it in properly before you judge it, and keep it dry when you're not sitting on it. It wouldn't hurt to run your cable lock through it: it collects a lot of jealous glances. Though costly, it's in line with exotic composite designs.

StarStarStarStarStar Brooks B67 saddle

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

General quality of craftsmanship
Comfort!

Cons

Fairly expensive

Other Thoughts

I have tried various wider and more padded saddles, staying away from the narrow saddles for years. The springs and slight increase in width help, and the narrower profile (compared to heavily padded seats) shelters me from upper leg discomfort that was limiting my comfortable time in the saddle. The difference between 50 and 100 mile days is in time now, not in comfort.

StarStarStarStarStar Instantly makes your bicycle look like a classic.

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: somewhat low

Pros

Looks fantastic, turns heads, instantly makes your bicycle look like a classic. After time, saddles of this type are far more comfortable than regular bicycle seats.

Cons

It will take some time to break it in. Do not expect to receive the comforting benefits of this type of saddle until after you have used it for about 200 miles. The leather is not waterproof. You need to keep it out of rain and avoid splashing water on it as much as possible. You should also consider buying a waterproof rain cover for this saddle.

Other Thoughts

You should soak this saddle with your favorite type of leather oil before you start using it. I used plain old baby oil and it works just fine. Drench the top and underside very well, let it soak in for about 30 minutes and then wipe off the excess. Then ride as much as possible.

StarStarStarStarStar Brooks B67 Saddle Pre-Aged Tan with Laces and Black Steel Rail

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Compared to typical road/race seat, the B67 saddle feels like there is more support surface, providing more positioning options for lengthy rides.

Cons

Leather seems to be as firm/hard, similar to the other Brooks seats. I had anticipated that the B67 would be more pliable based on reports from others who purchased the same bike seat.

Other Thoughts

I use the seat on a road bike - riding position is mostly leaning into an aerobar, but the bar is raised higher than what's usual. Had the first ride today and the experience left me feeling very optimistic about what to expect after an adjusting period. Happy with my choice.

StarStarStarStarStar what everyone else says...it's the best

by
Ownership: several months

Pros

after a short break in and some adjusting (including a Velo Orange seatpost to increase the setback), I love it!

Cons

it's a bit heavy but, it's on my touring bike so it's not a big deal

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.
