    Anyone have experience with a Brooks B-90/3

    The B-90/3 saddle looks like a heavy duty saddle. It has a nostalgic look to it and I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this particular model.

    I've been thinking about getting one. My bike is currently only at 38 pounds, but I really want to get it to 40.

    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    I guess that means it would make a good boat anchor. Only 2 lbs for a saddle? I thought it would be at least 5 lbs.

    I have one and like it. The springs can get in the way of things that are carried on the the top of the carrier if you have one of those. Not serious however. I like Brooks saddles.

    The suspension system on the B-90 is for some seriously compromised road conditions. Even that is overkill for northern New England's frost heaved roads.

    I had completely forgotten about solid tires. Now I see the necessity!
