    Brooks Swift ate my pants! Warning: butt pics inside

    This damn saddle is a month old and its eaten 3 pairs of pants! You would figure a $200.00 saddle would be made a little better. Some of the copper rivets were sharp enough to cut into my pants.


    To sum it up. This saddle sucks! Even if it was just a fluke, this damn thing cost me 3 pairs of $70.00+ jeans.

    I've had that problem too





    I recently got a Brooks saddle and it hasn't yet eaten any jeans. I've put around 600 or so miles on it so far.

    thats exactly the size of my balls.
    *high 5!*

    but seriously,
    just patch up em and they'll be as good as new.
    Or better yet! sew in gel padding!
    That would be SICK!

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    I had this happen to me last month on a bike pub crawl. I'd put my weight forward to skid and tear it open further...and further. Spent the next five hours with a hole from my pocket to knee, going from bar to bar with my boxers showing.

    This was on an old Rolls saddle from the 80s.

    gotta be pretty common.

    Dude, I don't even know what $70 jeans would look like! 501s all the way.

    Koffee,icithecat,Spud. I did say.. better Butt pics upon request.


    Ch0mb0: Adam Hays at our shop drew up the design. he has another one drawn up for the other side of my leg.

    el twe: I have a few pairs of 501 and they did the same thing. The $70 ones are from Banana republic. Silly me thought that better jeans would last longer.
