old old old...old old old school

Who wants a bicycle saddle that was designed in 1890?
Not me but that's what I got.

I wanted a saddle that would feel comfortable, last a lifetime and look great on my bike so I got the BROOKS B17 Imperial Narrow.

BROOKS saddles are made of leather and will gradually conform to the unique position of the rider's sit bones.  They're also notable for their longevity.

"It's gotta' be old school."

If you have a newer bike, BONTRAGER saddles are probably the way to go but if you have an older bike...

BROOKS saddles seem expensive at first but in the long run, they're a lot cheaper.  After breaking my original TROXEL seat, I went on to break 3 other $50-$100 saddles within the same year.  Hopefully, I've found my 'holy-grail' and will never have to buy another saddle again.

There are some things to consider before deciding to go with BROOKS or not.  Since BROOKS saddles are made of leather, you can't just leave it out in the rain without some kind of seat-cover.  My particular model needs to be laced down tight to prevent the sides from losing it's shape (so far, it hasn't caused any problems) and every now and then, it needs to be treated with Proofide conditioner to keep it from drying out. 

Finally, there's the 200 mile "break-in" period where the saddle might seem too stiff but everyone says it's worth the wait.  I'm happy to report that it felt great from 'day-one' but if it wants to get better with age, that's fine with me too.
