Brooks B17 Special




Product Details

This is a deluxe version of the basic Black Brooks B.17, that most-popular of all Brooks saddle for general riding. It is deluxe in that the lower edge of the side flap is hand-beveled (skived), and the rivets holding the leather to the frame are 13mm wide copper and set by hand with a hammer, rather than small steel and machine-set.

The difference is purely cosmetic, and if you like the honey color and the big rivets and get a warm chill knowing a brute with a mallet smacked them down flush with the lever, then get this saddle, because it is truly wonderful.

It's 17cm wide. It is the best all-around Brooks model, and the one that makes Brooks so famous and popular these days.

If you sit really upright, consider another model (like the B. 72 which we don't stock, or the B.67 which we do). But for general sportsy-type riding, any B.17 is the one we prefer.
