Brooks? Comfortable???

I saw this today in my work's bike shed - it's in daily use! I'm pretty sure it's not a male rider...

That particular model (sprung b67 if I am not mistaken) comes shaped like that from the start... A commuter at my place of work has one as well, and i picked one up in an Amsterdam flea market years ago.

The angle makes me cringe, but I suppose the swept-back bars allow the masochist to lean back and maintain virulence!

I've got a new one, it's a Champion Flyer (it might be a 67 too). Less than 500 miles & it's comfy.
