The Brooks B67 S is an English made leather women's saddle ideal for city or touring builds that use a rather upright posture. The B67 S is the single-railed women's version of the B66, a classically sprung leather saddle that provides supreme comfort for any rider who's handlebars are higher than their saddle. For riders with a more upright riding position, Brooks suggests a wider and more heavily sprung saddle to provide the most comfort on longer rides. 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.
This review is not about the quality of the saddle. As expected from Brooks, the quality is superb (hence 3 stars). My gripe is with the fact that this saddle is marketed as a "women's" model. My experience with this saddle was rather painful. Due to the shortness, the nose (which is supported by metal underneath the leather) kept hitting my delicate parts with every bump in the road. I didn't have this problem with the men's model, I bought after this one. Hence my advice: if you like short saddles, go for it - independent of your sex. Otherwise, stick with the longer men's model.
Ok so I am just getting back into exercise. I am female, 55, a good 40 lbs overweight, and not in fabulous cardiovascular shape. I bought this saddle for my Electra Townie. I was drawn to it by all the good reviews online. I was intimidated by how hard it was, having been brainwashed that softer is better. I used it for the first time today and road for 20 miles. It was actually super comfortable! Once it's broken in it will be absolutely amazing.
