Brooks Saddles

Selling 2 saddles... a professional that has around 100 miles and a flyer with around 20. I must finally admit that i will never get the professional broken in in my lifetime, and the flyer is just too heavy and for the bike i wanted to use it for. the professional has a few light scratches but otherwise in great shape, and the flyer is like new with a few "tiger stripes" in the leather that it had when i bought it new. $125 shipped for either one. SOLD

the B17 seems to work better for my elder hind quarters, and I just installed a Sella Anatomica H2 on one of the herd but haven't tried it yet. The professional is made from some serious dinosaur hide though... the chances of breaking it in before it breaks me first seems somewhere between slim and none. and the flyer is just too hypocritical to put on a bike that I've made some effort to lighten up a bit!
