All BROOKS saddles from CycleStop come in the original BROOKS gift box and include Guarantee and Service booklet and a BROOKS tension adjustment spanner. The B17 is Brooks' flagship model, ideal for long distance sports touring, trekking and atb use. It has been on the market for over 120 years, being featured in as early as the 1898 catalogue. Typically the touring and trekking cyclist will spend a greater amount of riding time in the saddle than the sporting cyclist, and is likely to adopt a wider variety of sitting positions.
Although the rider may stand up from time to time to achieve greater control or generate a burst of speed, the standard position on the bike is seated. Therefore the touring & trekking models (Flyer and B17) are wider than our sporting models in order to increase comfort. If you ride in a more upright position, the B67 is even wider and a great city and heavy duty model.
For road and mountain bikes, try the B17 Narrow, Team Pro or Swift models. If you want long lasting quality and comfort, you cannot go past a genuine Brooks saddle! The Brooks bike saddle story started way back in 1865, a young man of just 19 years of age was said to have bought'one of those new-fangled velocipedes' which was fitted with a wooden saddle, this proved excruciating. As luck would have it his father made leather saddles for horses, so the young man known as John Boultbee Brooks set to work in his fathers workshop designing and developing a comfortable saddle from leather.
The rest they say is history.... Brooks experience in saddle making goes right back to the beginning - back to the period of solid tyres - and is unequalled by any other house in the world. That said, they recognise the fact that they cannot rely on their past history alone, so they still build saddles with the same attitude as when they started,'quality first', both in materials and manufacture. The testament to this is that there are still saddles in active use today, made many many years ago.Free fitting service available when paying by cash.
