I totally get why people swear by them.
When the saddle arrived it included an adjustment spanner and a rain cover. The rain-cover has a Velcro strap on it so it tucks nicely rolled away under the saddle, strapped to the rail. All Brooks saddles have two little loops at the back of the saddle to hang a saddlebag off, which is so handy I can't believe other saddle makers don't have it.
First impressions were…'What a thing of beauty!' This object could easily be put on a plinth in a gallery as a ready-made, it's so sculptural it wants to be touched.

PROS: Attractive Design, Strong Construction

BEST USES: Road Biking, Touring

beautiful saddle
This is a review for the B17 Special (the one w/ copper rivets). It's a beautiful saddle--truely a work of art. It takes a while for the leather to break in, but once it does you can ride all day with no discomfort. It's worth the time investment. Plus it's a beautiful piece of work (did I mention that yet?).

PROS: Attractive Design, Strong Construction, Comfortable, Durable

CONS: Heavy

BEST USES: Touring, Upgrade, Road Biking

Great saddle, as expected
A great saddle, takes a little breaking in (as is expected) but now feels great. Looks really nice, I hope it lasts forever!

The absolute best saddle!
After a sore butt Edmonton - Victoria return someone said Brooks B-17. Over 20,000 kms later (a lot of days in excess of a century (>160 kms)) my butt is never the problem!

Best saddle on the market!
Best saddle on the market for touring, radonneuring and every day use.
Very comfortable and easy to break in. I own four of these and will oder another for my new folder.
The only downside is that their made of full grain leather and need to be protected from the rain.

PROS: Strong Construction, Great Mounting System, Attractive Design

100 years later, they can't improve it!
There is NO BLOB OF PLASTIC out there that will give you the long term comfort one of these will.
It WILL break into your posterior if you ride it properly and long enough. And you will either love it, or hate it. The ones like me, who love it, have a Brooks on all our bikes, and would accept no other.
The way you mountain bikers ride, it may not be best for your rigs. It's not totally waterproof. But if uou want all day comfort, look no further.

PROS: Comfortable, Puts the weight on ischia, Beautifully made, Durable

CONS: Outdated short rails, Heavy, May not stand up to MTBer, Not waterproof

Beautiful brooks craftsmanship
There are lots of great saddles out there, but I would never give up my brooks B17. I run one on my road bike and it's properly broken in and by far the most comfortable saddle I own.

PROS: Attractive Design

CONS: Heavy

Best saddle I ever have
I started this saddle for my Folding bike for classic looking. Later bought another one for my wife, so she can ride on Tandem with me. Now she can go over 30 miles with me, it is worth the price.

PROS: Comfortable

CONS: Weight

Great saddle
I was amazed at how quickly the delivery came. I live in Canada and usually wait patiently for a week or more for deliveries from the United States. This was my first order from Jenson and it came within 48 hours of ordering it. Definitely won't be my last order!
