Brooks B17, awesome saddle on first ride. I won a Yeti cooler at work, sold it and used the money to purchase something I could use!

I used Brooks saddles for quite a while, but I've happily moved on.

Some people swear by them, some swear at them.

I like my Brooks.
As I see it, if they feel good, there is nothing better.
And if they don't feel right, they never will.
