    Best place to buy Brooks saddle in the U.S.A.

    Yesterday was my birthday, and even though I don't need a saddle, I believe I deserve one. I want to give the leather saddle cult a chance. The entire concept of "breaking in" isn't appealing to me, but I still haven't heard someone complaining about their Brooks after getting used to it.

    I am not sure if I want the Swift or the B-17 (to be butched into a more XXI century looks), but in one way or another, I do need a good source for them.

    Anyone can point me into the right direction?

    Thank you in advance.

    My recommendation would be Wallingford Cycles ie; Wallbike.

    They have decent prices and a money back guarantee.

    +1 on Wallbike. The prices are a little higher than other places but they have a great return policy and offer excellent customer service. I'll pay extra for those any day of the week.

    Kelly's Bar. It's on South Washington Square in Lansing, Michigan. That's where I got my Brooks Professional, and I couldn't be happier.

    Nashbar has a B-17 on sale, with a + 20% off coupon, thru Friday.

    Hard to beat their guarantee.

    p.s. I got one from them for $50 last summer.

    Don't use your credit card to buy from them without reading this first. Identity Theft and Nasbar?

    Just use one of those virtual, one-time-use cards that most cards allow you to generate now. Even if stolen, not a big deal.
    Surly Long Haul Trucker, 54cm
    Bottecchia CF78 55cm frame, Dura-Ace/Ultegra/105 components
    Motobecane Fantom Comp, 20 inch
    RANS V2 Formula recumbent

    Success is a journey, not a destination. Stop running.

    Besides the suggestions listed already, I'll say, "Anywhere." My reasoning is that they sell quickly on Craigslist (or here on BF) if you decide you don't like it -- and you might not even sell it for a loss.

    Best place to by Brooks saddle in the U.S.A.

    Well, why not buy one online such as amazon, overstock, buy.com.
    And maybe try this site, sometimes it has deals.

    The last one that I bought was from Wallbike. For me the key was product selection because they stock all the models. I wanted to buy a Team Pro S for my wife. Can't find those just anywhere.
