Brooks B17 Standard Saddle

Brooks B17 Standard Saddle

The Brooks B17 is an English made leather saddle that has truly stood the test of time. Being Brooks’ flagship model for over 100 years, the B17 has been the go-to leather saddle for long distance touring, trekking, and all-terrain use. Cyclist of any ilk can appreciate a comfortable saddle as it’s one of few actual contact points when riding a bicycle. One thing anyone who’s ridden a Brooks saddle will tell you is that they really do improve with age; by treating the leather properly and simply putting in miles, the saddle will begin to break-in and form to the rider’s seat bones creating a comfortable and personalized riding experience.

      Comments about Brooks B17 Standard Saddle:

      I love this saddle but need another 900 miles of break in ? Will review then. Felt good right out of box ! The proper adjustment is critical to comfort. Slight tilt up 3 degrees. Brooks B17 is hard but really feels great. Who would think? Don't forget profide conditioner.

        Comments about Brooks B17 Standard Saddle:

        I've had B17 saddles on my road and touring bikes for 10+ years. They're still going strong. I just bought one for my mountain bike. I was a little apprehensive about putting it through the wet and muddy woods of New England, but after about 100 miles of springtime riding, the saddle is breaking in nicely, and shows no sign of damage from wetness. And it has been wet. Granted, this isn't a long sample period, but so far so good. Oh yeah, and it looks fantastic.

          Comments about Brooks B17 Standard Saddle:

          I'm using the saddle on a Jamis Coda i'm doing a custom build on, for weekend adventures for camping. The saddle does come with a small amount of conditioner. Make sure to follow directions as the conditioner is intended to be used on the under side and not so much on the top. Cautions of color choice as the saddle color may bleed into your clothing. The saddle is heavy so if your counting grams, probably not for you, but if your loading your bike with camping gear and going for an adventure, whats a couple more grams sacrificed for nice ride.

          Comments about Brooks B17 Standard Saddle:

          I was using a saddle that was too narrow for me, my wife had me pick a new saddle out for my birthday. I was skeptical about these saddles at first. I've heard that they are heavy and uncomfortable to start. The weight wasn't an issue since my steel frame 29er is already heavy and I don't race. This saddle was comfortable right out of the box. As a matter of fact, it was the most comfortable saddle I've ever been on and it's not fully broken in yet. I've put about 40 miles on it so far and it's already starting to break in. Love the antique brown color. Came with a small proofide starter packet (enough for the first treatment) and a tension bolt wrench. I never thought I would say that I love a saddle, but this one I do. Well worth the investment.

                  Don't fear the break in. After it's over, a Brooks feels like riding in a lawn chair. This is my fourth Brooks and I'm never disappointed.

                    Wish I had a B17 years ago, but the racer boy in me wouldn't think of a heavy saddle, well at 55 I've seen the light.
                    Mine felt broke in from day one.
                    Would I put a B17 on a carbon race bike, no way but on my Fargo or a touring bike it's the only way to go,.

                      I needed an apple green in a women's brooks saddle, but they are not available. Also I have a brooks special and feel that the hand hammered copper rivets are a lot better and kinder to the leather. The saddle is very good and looks beautiful.

                      thanks!
