the brooks flyer is just the B17 with springs and im wondering if there is a noticeable different in feel between the two. jensonusa has a honey B17 SPECIAL for $90, while universalcycles has a REGULAR honey brooks flyer for $100. A $10 difference isnt much to consider, so what it comes down to is should i get the better looking special honey b17, or the added comfort of the springs from the flyer? if the springs really add any noticeable comfort over the regular b17 then im going with the flyer for sure. The type of riding i do is mostly paved roads, but also the occasional single track, dirt or gravel trail.
