Sorry if this has been asked (I have searched but not found anything)
I'm deciding on a saddle for a 2000 km first tour through the USA. Brooks are coming highly recommended but I'm not sure which to go for.
I was thinking about the B-17 Special but noticed this had no springs! Surely on such a long ride spring would be a good idea?
Also, what is the point in going special because as far as I can see the only difference between standard and special is one has copper rivets.. Do these serve a purpose or just look nice?
Thanks in advance for any replies
