Brooks B17 Saddle
Quite simply, the Brooks B17 saddle is a living legend. The venerable English saddle company's flagship model, the B17 has been on the market for over 100 years. The classic B17 Brooks saddle features an all-leather cover with steel rivets and a tension adjuster. When broken-in, Brooks saddles are considered by many to be the most comfortable on the market. The B17 is ideal for commuting, long distance trekking, and general purpose riding. And to keep a Brooks saddle in tip-top condition, utilize Brooks Proofide (BK-PF40) to condition, preserve and shower-proof your saddle.

      Comments about Brooks B17 Saddle:

      This is saddle number 5 for me. I'm 6'3" and 220 so the extra weight of this saddle according to my University physics was negligible. If you can't comfortably sit on the saddle the weight of the bike is irrelevant. I talked to the Brooks customer support in England for guidance on model selection and they were superb. The last time I used a Brooks saddle was in the early 80s but I'm using one for the rest of the 2000s!

        Comments about Brooks B17 Saddle:

        %30 off was too good to pass up for this saddle so I went for it -- replacing a WTB Speed V that I bought a couple of years ago that I had hoped would be more comfortable than the stock Bontrager saddle on my 2006 Trek 6500 SLR, but wasn't...hard to believe that this saddle could be so much more comfortable, but it is! There is hardly any discomfort after riding all day -- and it's not even broken in yet after just a few weeks of riding! I look forward to it getting even better as it breaks in! I'm really happy with this purchase!

        Pretty happy with the product. At the beginning I had a lot of issues with front pressure and being able to feel the rivets though my chamois. after A bit of adjustment I feel very comfortable after 50 miles. At 220 I can see my sit bone divets at 100 miles.

              These saddle are amazing, I have three. After the break in period of 300-500 miles they conform to your anatomy and are so comfortable that I don't use chamois lined lycra shorts when I tour.

                  Have sit on this saddle for about 20 miles, I hurt no where. I took off the original seat from my Trek and replaced it with the B17. I Am not sorry I bought it.

                  Excellent after break-in, but adjuster is the weak link

                      Comments about Brooks B17 Saddle:

                      I've done mostly commute-style rides of 20-40 miles on mixed asphalt and gravel roads, 3-5 times a week, for the past 30 years. At 6'6" and 210 lbs my bike saddle (and butt) take a pounding. I've tried a lot of saddles, but when I found the Brooks B17 8 years ago it was a revelation. I bought a black one, put Proofide on it, and rode it for two months, and it was stiff as a brick. I thought I had made a mistake, but did notice my butt wasn't as sore after a ride as before. Then on month 3, poof, it broke in, and the long commutes were now as pain-free as the short ones. Awesome.

                      Sadly, after 8 years, the head on the adjuster bolt on the seat (which I rarely had to adjust) snapped off. The rest of the seat is still fine, but finding a new adjuster bolt is a pain. Nashbar should sell them. However, there are instructions online for using a lathe to turn an 8MM cap screw into an adjuster, and that's what I'm doing, because I simply don't want to abandon this wonderfully broken-in seat. Google around, and you'll see that adjuster failures on this seat are fairly common. I now own a new honey-colored B17 which my butt is breaking in, so I'll have a spare once my black B17 is fixed. I didn't take off a star for the adjuster, because 8 years is about 7 years longer than I've ever owned any other seat, so I guess I can't complain.

                        I have an old road bike from the 1970's. It came with a leather seat. It was always very comfortable and my rear end never was uncomfortable. This new leather saddle is similar. It took no breaking in for me and I can ride and ride without pain.
