..
So:
Nashbar has a B-17 for $129.99
Performance about the same, $130.00
Amazon has a B-17 for $93.49
Biketiresdirect has them on "closeout" for $86.99
REI at $119.00

So these aren't the same Brooks B-17? Brooks website has the "Standard" B-17 at $145 and it looks the same as each photo of the above listed saddles.
