What color Brooks saddle to suit my bike?
2 Attachment(s)

Apologies if this is the wrong forum to post this. I'm currently using this Dahon Foldie (see attached)

Silver frame with matte black seat post and handlebars. I'm thinking of getting a Brooks saddle for the reported comfort but don't know what color to choose. An obvious choice would be the black, but I was wondering if antique brown or honey would be better, adding some variety to the bike. Or would the colors clash horribly?

Sorry about the double attachment, I can't figure out how to delete one!

I would use a black saddle. The only way I would switch color is if you are also switching the grips for the same color as the saddle.

I've always been a honey fan.

but then you might have to get leather grips. and skinwall tires

Red one might look pretty cool.

My black Brooks seem to hav been less affected by sweat and other moisture problems than my honey saddles.

Of course, the black ones are newer, too.
