A very classy saddle.

I already have a 10 year old Brooks B17 saddle on my tourer and it is the most comfortable saddle that I have ever had. So when I restored my 30 year old Dawes Road Bike only a Brooks saddle would do. I am delighted with it. It adds the final touch of class to the old bike which is now painted "Bianchi" blue, has a Renalds 531 steel frame and the original "Sun Tour" gears with "down shifters".

Pros

  • Classy
  • Really suits the bike
  • Virtually indestructible

Cons

  • Will take a while to break in
  • May be a little heavy for some.
