Brooks Swift ti
No pictures yet, I'm afraid
But my Specialized Sirrus Triple, biopace, indexed downtube 105, and the rest - I think there are a few here who know and like 'em, lugged steel and rides nicely --
The bike needed a 20th birthday present, after loads of happy miles and multi-country tours
So, I just placed an online order to a Brooks Titanium Swift, honey colour with Brooks leather bar tape, which I'll pick up in Yorkshire UK when I go there for a summer holiday in August.
I can't wait. I've loved the bike for LOADS of miles, but I've never had a happy saddle on it - and my first serious bike when I was a schoolkid proto racer had a Brooks Swift - I never ever thought about the saddle, even though I rode the same bike for touring, camping, centuries, road races, time trials, as was the way in 1968!
