My first ever Brooks saddle. It replaced an early 90's saddle that was on my 70's project bike. Now things look correct and much more classier in the saddle department on the bike, plus maybe this Imperial will be much more comfortable after it fully breaks in.

May it serve you well! You've probably heard this already, but you may find it to work best with the nose tilted up a little more.

Yes, it's actually slightly tilted up already, at least compared to my other saddles on my other bikes which are pretty much dead flat.

I've ridden my std imperial more than any other leather saddles that I have owned. I goofed around with the positioning, what seemed like a lifetime. Forward, back, up down.... never ceasing. Anyway, I actually settled with it nearly dead level, YMMV. Mine is laced tightly in the sides and i'd say it took nearly 1,000 miles to show signs up breaking in. I view that as a very good thing. It's a great saddle, I want more!

I like Alton Brown. That makes me feel warmer about keeping the drill around. Doesn't he also hate single-use tools? That makes me feel cooler towards Alton!

Actually, I used the manual handle last night for two pots of coffee. It wasn't the massive amount of effort that I expected and was nice and quiet.... that's valuable when your toddler's bedroom isn't far from the kitchen!

A carbon seatpost, the only one made that will work.
2 chains (I only ordered one, or so I thought. Oh, well, an extra)
Black wrap.

Going on my beloved GF's baby Peloton. She's installing, adjusting, and tuning it herself.
All that's left is the seat, post, brifters & calipers.

Goodies from iab!

The t shirt and the tub bag are beyond expectations.

Also, received a very nice Merino wool jersey from Oregon Cyclewear.

Pics on all when I get the boys home from soccer later.

2 FSA chainrings and a registered mail notice.
I sure hope it's either a Campy seatpost or some new yellow tubulars.

She'll be a great rider!

Start a thread. We would love to see the bike and there are folks on here that will be glad to give you a hand.

Mine is still available though.

Jannd Panniers for my upcoming bike camping tour next month:

And a 1" threaded stem for my Mercier Kilo TT. Oddball size but I happened across this nice Ritchey 1" stem on the 'bay for $4.99 BIN that matched the seatpost I was already using!


...and it works with 25.4 & 26.0 h-bars
perfect match for the 26.8 seatpost I picked up for this bike a while back. So nice when things work out like that.
