Brooks Flyer vs. B67
I have ridden B17s for a couple of years now and a Flyer for just a time or two. I would be interested to hear others thoughts and experiences on the B67 vs. the Flyer. It would be going on a hybrid. Is it too wide? Is it significantly more comfortable? Is it ANY more comfortable? If you're going to ride 60 or 80 miles, which one would you want?

I have two B67's, and plan on buying a third this coming spring. They are pretty comfortable and are a good fit for me. I ride in an upright position (think Raleigh Sports), with Northroads style bars. The Flyer uses the same leather top as the B17. Little narrow for me.

The more upright the more comfortable the B67 is going to be. I use the Flyer on my drop bar touring bike and my expedition bike, both have a more aggressive riding position. I use B66/B67 on my Raleigh Superbe, Twenty and Redline R530 which are all upright style bikes where you put more weight on your arse. For real comfort I have a B33 on my Raleigh Roadster, but that is like a Fleetwood Limousine.

I have been riding a B67 for a few years on a hybrid bike and highly recommend it. I did try it on my road and touring bikes but that did not work out.
