How about a brown Brooks Team Pro saddle and matching bar tape?
Ive got half-step + granny on a couple of my own bikes and love it, but since this is for my son, Ill probably swap out the 45T middle for a 40. Im also a Brooks guy (B17s all around) but the Selle Royal saddle on there looks pretty comfy, so well see how it works for him.
