Saddle - Brooks B17s (short), Special
B17 Special Short
This is the fancy and smaller "short" version of the Brooks B17.
This is a Special because 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. Also the steel frame and rails have a brass-like chrome finish instead of a black powder coat.
The difference is cosmetic, and if you like the honey color and the big rivets and get a chill knowing a brute with a mallet smacked the copper rivets flush with the leather, then get this saddle.
The "S" version is not as long as the non-s type, which is better for shorter people and looks nicer (not as huge and out of proportion) on smaller bikes. It also may say"Ladies" somewhere on the box, so if you're a dudebro that can't handle "ladies" things, do not buy this saddle, get the non-S version.
