    I've drenched my Brooks Pro Alpe d'Huez edition a handful of times, it's been fine. Got a little dry after, but a coat of Sno-Seal sorted it right out.

    For retro saddles I like Flites, my Brooks Pro, and the Regal, but not Turbos. The Rolls is a similar shape to the Turbo, but my 'taint prefers its ample padding. Just can't handle the Turbo. I...

    I love my 46cm Noodles. I have broad shoulders so they fit - they help me have a more open, relaxed riding posture. I like the bend - it has all my favourite bends in one bar. I like bombing down...
