Why do I love my Brooks Saddle? For years I put up with other manufactures seats and suffered. I could never ride two days in a row and I would start feeling uncomfortable when distances reached thirty miles. I noticed many of my club friends were using Brooks saddles, but always thought they were too old school. Boy was I wrong! I finally decided to give a Brooks B17 a try and knew instantly when I sat on it that I had found saddle Nirvana. To this day, I kick myself in the ass for not trying one sooner.
