This saddle is an excellent choice for
touring, century rides, ultra-marathon rides and other demanding types
of cycling. The B17 is most appropriate for cyclists who set their
handlebars about the same height as their saddles, or a bit lower. All
of the B17 models feature bag loops to permit the use of a traditional
English-style touring bag.
Brooks saddles, being real leather, require some maintenance. First,
you must apply Proofide or some other saddle lubrication every couple
of months. Second, like any good saddle, you need to protect it from
rain and moisture. Third, you must maintain/adjust the saddle tension.
This saddle has a smooth leather top, with 3
small holes for ventilation, smooth (non chamfered) skirts, small
hollow steel rivets, with quality saddle bag loops on the frame.
