    Comments about Brooks Swallow Classic Titanium Saddle:

    I purchased my first Brooks Swallow saddle in 2009, and I have them on all of my fast bikes now. The Swallow softens up well after a couple of applications of Proofide/Obenauf's/leather treatment of choice. The Swallow allows about 3.25 inches of fore-aft adjustment on your seatpost, which is not as great as some other saddles but is reasonable. Otherwise they install on your seatpost just like any standard saddle. The Swallow is reasonably light and looks great on any bike.

    Three things to watch:
    * The Swallow is a narrower saddle than most (about 6" at its widest), so consider how well the saddle might support your sit bones. I'm a big guy, and the saddle is just wide enough to support me. I agree with those who hold that the comfort of Brooks saddles improves over time, but I also think that, if the saddle doesn't feel OK on first use, it probably doesn't fit and you need to try something else. This is especially true of the Brooks Swallow saddle; you should know immediately whether it's for you.
    * The leather on the Brooks Swallow saddle loops underneath the saddle for stiffness. This means that, when you sit on the saddle, the leather loop might sag down and hit the bolts on your seatpost clamp. If the seat is in the right position for you, you must take a hacksaw and trim the bolt to size so that you don't wear the leather.
    * You must maintain your leather saddle, but it's a lot easier to overdo maintenance than it is to underdo maintenance. Just hit the saddle with leather treatment on top and bottom anytime that the bottom gets dry, avoid saturating the saddle with water (and let the saddle dry before use if it is saturated), and tighten the tension nut so that it is just snug whenever the tension nut comes loose. Otherwise a little rain or sweat won't hurt the saddle.
