Brooks Swift
 
Any of you use a Brooks Swift on your ultra light carbon fiber roadie? It's not the lightest saddle in the world, but it's alot lighter than the B-17 and alot sportier looking.

I've heard Brooks saddles are incredibly comfy. Reviews please!:)

Yes. Brooks are very comfy. I have the B-17 but I'm sure the Swift is just as comfy.

I have a chopped Brooks Swift on my ultralight tinanium road racing machine. I love that saddle.

I remember seeing a thread on here where someone showed how they made a B17 look just like a Swift by using a Dremel tool. The result looked remarkably similar and saved him a lot of money.

My swift never did quite work out. Beautiful saddle though.

Ironical that the exact guy who did that posted just above you. George is famous on the 'butchered and tied' portion of the Wallbike.com website.

Swifts and Swallows are kickass.

I use a Team Professional on my ultralight CF roadie, and am looking into the Swift and Swallow for the Ti rails and general awesomeness.

My road bike isn't ultralight but I use a Swift on it. The saddle is very comfortable for me.

The fit wasn't quite perfect. I bought it from Nashbar for a decent price, so I wasn't able to try it out. The saddle was thrashed when I got hit by a car about a month ago.

Do you ever make a post that does not relate to an equipment purchase?
