    Brooks saddle with anatomical cutout

    I don't remember where I saw it, but is there a shop or dealer that modifies Brooks saddles to have a center cutout, and sells them? Anyone ever heard of this? I swear I read about it somewhere but can't seem to locate a source...

    Why is the hole in the rear part of the saddle so large? So you can take a crap while biking?

    Unfortunately I dont ride with my balls and penis being the main part of me on the saddle.

    Who experiments with two brand new and ****ing expensiev saddles simultaneously?

    Anyway, at least he was honest: "If you think you can ride these experiments please bid"

    Doesn't a cut out negate the whole point of a Brooks?

    Why not just pick up saddles that are designed around a cutout section?

    http://www.selleanatomica.com/

    You are thinking about selleanatomica...not to be confused with the selle plastic/leather covered saddles

    These guys have a clever product based on the brooks models and will also retrofit your old brooks. The nice feature of the Selleanatomica saddle is that the rails are longer. The brooks b17 has too short of rails IMO. I have not tried these saddles but the testimonials are pretty good.

    i got to try a selle anatomica for a little bit and it was very comfortable. i dont know if i would purchase one for myself, but it had noticably more flex and cushion than a standard brooks.

    they're total boat anchors, but lots of folks love them. especially touring or long distance. also rich people (i saw more on S&S coupler-ed bikes than anything else).

    Looks like a cheap castration device. One bump is all it'll take.

    This kind of thing was a LOT more common "back in the day" when more people rocked leather saddles and more companies made them. There are still some websites and shops devoted to chopping brooks (probably more in Europe).

    I guess you can pay some dude to do it for you, but why not do it yourself? Couldn't be easier. Just mark it off nice and use a box cutter. A be careful on the first few slits and don't try and cut all the way through on the first pass. You'll be surprised how easy it is.

    It can't turn out worse than those two above. The person who made those should get a neck punch.
