This saddle is more comfortable than imagined!

Posted02 August 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
I bought the Brooks B17 Select, thinking it would take me 500km of riding to break it in. So I generously applied the Proofide on the saddle 3 times over 6 days before I took it out for a ride. To my surprise, for the first ride out, this saddle was more comfortable than the more seasoned factory fitted Brompton saddle. Now I look forward to riding my bike more.

Best classic saddle

Posted02 January 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great, Comfortable
My first Brooks saddle. Although I have not broken in the saddle, the first ride on the saddle was not as bad. quite comfortable and bearable. Though I know it still need more time to break in the saddle. Overall feels like a good investment to last a lifetime.

Great touring saddle

Posted16 November 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: Heavy, Expensive
This product was everything I expected it to be. It is my third Brooks Saddle. (I have a 25 year old Team Professional still going strong). I upgraded to the Select to try the thicker leather. It seems fine, but I notice no difference to the basic B17 in comfort.
I love the width of the seat and the comfort. The organic leather is a nice feature but I will only know if its any better than the other B17's I have thirty years from now. Stand by for further review, I'll give you an early update in ten years.
