Brooks England B17 Standard Saddle - Men's $130.00
Ride the classic.
The folks at Brookes Heritage Saddles have been producing the Men’s B17 Standard Bike Saddle for over 100 years. Needless to say, they have a pretty good idea of what they’re doing. The durable full-grain leather cover keeps the B17 Saddle cool on especially warm days, and it will mold to your shape and riding style over months of use, providing you with maximum comfort and durability. This saddle features steel rails to absorb shock and reduce vibrations on rough roads or mountain passes. The abrupt taper between the rear and nose sections helps to eliminate inner-thigh rubbing and chafing, and the wide rear section lends support for your long rides.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
After broken in, these saddles are the best for long rides. Nothing cradles you like good ol leather.
I ride my 1974 French Made "Lyberia" at least 25K weekly. Love my bike...love my Brooks!
It is a little on the heavy/bulky side and would look funny on a carbon bike, but on my steel road bike that still rides beautifully it looks fine and it is the first seat that I can say is fantastic. The added weight compared to my old saddle is minimal when I think of my ideal cycling weight and what I do weigh now, and to get there I need to ride. This saddle keeps me on the bike longer and I ride more frequently. AWESOME.... if you're like me, it was the best thing I did to ride more!!!
Can't beat the price
This saddle is more than comfortable. It's comfy out of the box, but only gets better as time goes on. Absolutely love it. Looks great and the leather looks better as it wears in. My only complaint is that the seat is a little noise. Seems the rails creek when you shift your butt around or pedal.
It takes a bit to break it in but once it's dialed in it's great!
I tried many saddles, but this one's the best for me. The smooth leather allows weight shifting to a different saddle position easily. This provides welcome change. These saddles are made very, very well, and should last a lifetime. The adjustment bolt is hard to change...I understand there is a special tool for it. This tightens the leather thay may stretch a bit. This should be done twice a year for the leather to be kept taught.
For the price, this is an excellent seat. Looks awesome feels great. Haven't got the chance to really break it in yet, but its still comfortable even when its new.
It's the Sh*t!
As everyone knows, it takes a few miles to work in, but after that: smooth sailing and it looks awesome!
Not for everyone, but if it is your school of cool, you won't be disappointed.
