Get a B17 Standard Brooks for 90$...It will be soft and break in quick....But it'll be a real leather one. Despite my recent bad experience with Brooks I can bring it to myself to forgive them. I'm hoping the new line of Select Saddles will represent the true hallmark of quality. Old brooks saddles can be had for 50$...just make sure to inspect the hide and also try to check the tension bolt for play. A saddle that looks perfectly formed may have a loose tension bolt. If it's really sloppy then it's probably shot.
