Brooks Saddle... honey or brown

Hi,

I have a Schwinn Circuit 1987 model (black color). http://velospace.org/node/34261

I was thinking of getting a brooks saddle for my bike after reading about it online. I was wondering what color (honey or brown) would be a better fit. I am leaning towards honey since the brown might be too dark for it. Any opinions. Thanks!

Nobody can be decisive , now? I got 2 Brooks , way before the Selle Italia Buy out, we only had a brown-black

Now ? get the un-dyed select, its better Leather , you can apply your own shoe Dye..

I'd start with the lighter color and let it gradually turn darker with use.

Honey looks like it will make for more interesting wear colorations.
