It'll be a long time before I'd get myself a Brooks to try, but it doesn't stop me from window shopping. The B17 appears to be the norm for everyone and that's likely what I'd end up getting. However, I'm curious about their "Heavy Duty" line: BROOKS ENGLAND LTD. | SADDLES | CITY+&+HEAVY+DUTY
As I'm getting a Linus Sport - a supposedly "light roadster" style, I'm guessing it's unsuitable without getting more upright bars. However, they are pretty neat looking, especially the B135, B190 and B33. Does anyone have any experiences with them, or know someone who has? Is all that extra springing particularly functional?
