Er - anyway....
Please US buyers (and Eurozone shoppers too!) - buy away from our shops at our distressed prices. Us Brits love jumble/car boot sales and you can get some proper bargains - actually - worth nothing that you can get new Dahon Jacks for about £200 so much cheaper than in the US - ALSO, shipping is normally quoted in £s so that'll be cheaper too!
Doesn't even seem a year ago that I was tossing up whether or not to buy a thudbuster from the states for half the price it cost in the UK....
"You know, your observations on Persons saddles (link1 link2 link3) and this fellow's (link4 link5) are pretty much at odds. It also seems there's sparse info available on BF for these saddles. You guys should probably start a thread in the General Discussion forum and trade more insights on this."
I never said the Persons #77 wasn't comfortable, but the fit and finish of the two examples I had were not up to Brooks' standards. Not even close. I might be willing to put one on a beater bike, but I don't have any beater bikes. You might not agree with my asessment. Order one and decide for yourself.

well sisters and brothers, been so long in the coalmine that I hadn't checked the thread for a while, glad I started it, as I guess maybe SJS cycles, whose Brookes saddles are now out of stock. The mailing thing is a real drag, both directions over the Atlantic (abebooks being my other vice). Thread turned a little tricky at the end wot wot wot still if saddles are all one has to get worked up about that says something good about the world.
Peace and love sisters and brothers
it aint the size of your wheels, its the rhythm of you cadence. And I got powergrips too.
Well, this may be considered heresy on a cycling site, but my wife bough me Top Gear magazine for Christmas. It comes directly from the UK and despite the exchange rate, its still bloody expensive.
Among other things, a Brommie may be in my future. Not doing things in half measure, I'd check every option box.
Next time I'm over there, maybe a bespoke Gieves and Hawkes suit or two. I hear the market for those is beginning to dry up.
I'm beginning to notice missing posts, two by now.

Shhh...keep it down until I'm finished shopping for myself!
When all this is over and the whole english speaking world is in shambles we can all post our great buys.
