alright, i have a two-fold question for the panel this time.
the first part is my usual foo-foo aesthetics opinion check. how do you all feel about brooks saddles on modern bikes? i'm rocking some pretty techy looking parts on my bike, it's lugless, i have a supertype seatpost on the way, threadless stem, etc. so it's pretty newish looking...would that make a brooks saddle (most likely a black swift) look hopelessly out of place?
second, has anyone done any heavy riding on a swift? fixed touring is going to be a pretty hefty task to begin with, i'm wondering if a swift will treat my ass right on my adventure. i really don't have the money or time to acquire and break in two different brooks saddles before i set off.
