Leather bar tape! I'm stoked! I also like the look of the stitched B17 N, and those tire irons are pretty classy...

Too bad all that inventory is stuck underwater, or possibly looted by now in New Orleans. :(
Yeah, poor Wallbikes.
The stuff isn't released yet, though,...
Leather bar tape, sweet !!
The best new offering will be the Ti-framed Pro. w00t! It's about time!
There is no finer bicycle company on this planet . Brooks leather saddles are legendary. I thank the bike gods for every Brooks saddle that I have had the privelege of breaking in.

I carry a plastic baggie under my Brooks saddles as cheap, easily replaced rain covers; what does one do about covering leather bar tape in heavy rain? I guess there's less to worry about bat tape in the way of stretching or sagging.

Just try not to ride in heavy rain! That's what the Weather Channel is for.
I've heard it's not a huge deal...
I have leather tape that I've carefully transferred from bike to bike since 1980. No "finger cheese." Lasts forever, no problem in the wet, despite what everyone fears.
