Where To Buy Brooks B17 Cheap?

Where is the cheapest site online to buy the Brooks B17 Standard? Or does anyone have one sitting around anywhere for sale? I am so sick and a tired of my current saddle. I really want a nice B17.

Rykoala, how long ago was that? Do you still have the coupon code? Or how did you get that price?

IRO has them for $54, and they tend to have good shipping prices.

And another vote for AEbike. +1 and a real brick and mortar store to boot. They dropship from QBP but should get it for you quick if its in stock.

For what it's worth, Wallingford Bicycle Parts does not have the best prices in the world, but they do offer a six-month no-questions-asked return policy. Given the somewhat controversial nature of Brooks saddles, this was worth a few extra bucks to me when I ordered my B-17 Narrow last week. It came yesterday and I have every intention of putting at least a 1,000 miles on it before deciding whether to keep it.

I wasn't kidding about the month. I still have some dickering to do before I give up on it. As to cost, call it $25 including postage.

CastIron, I already got a FedEx quote on shipping $7.59 for "end of day 3 day". I sure hope that saddle isnt very comfortable for you.

Ok, it is ordered. I hope to get it by Monday, maybe? I ordered it from Alfred E. Bikes. It was like $58 shipped. By far the best price. Well, I cant wait to get it. Even not broken in, its got to be better than my stock saddle(which I will use for bad weather.) I will post pics when I get it.

I found Brooks saddles comfortable right out of the box. Be careful with the proofide. Some folks have ruined their saddles trying to accelerate the break in period with home made treatments.

Castiron, give me a PM if you want to part with your saddle.

Evidently my $25 saddle offer rang a bell with several folks. So I'll do this:
PM me at the end of April if you're interested. I'll mail the saddle out in exchange for a red star. That way I'm not breaking rules about selling stuff here and doing some good. Mods feel free to slap me if this is an issue.

It's been on my hardtail since late summer (ridden thru the winter), has been proofhided, and is (IMHO) in good condition. It's the basic black model.
