Product Description

There's nothing quite like a sprung leather saddle to top off a nice touring, randonneuring, or commuter build. The Brooks B67 Saddle utilizes time-tested technologies to give you an incredibly comfortable, forgiving ride. Tensioned leather, classically-designed steel springs, and durable brass rivets make this a saddle that will last a lifetime or three with proper care. Brooks have been making saddles for well over 100 years, and the sum of that experience can be seen in every saddle that come

Strengths:    Comfort, comfort, comfort.
No chaffing, no saddle sore, no paddes shorts needed.


Weaknesses:    Might be a bit wide for some.


Bottom Line:   
The more upright you ride, the more comfortable this saddle is. The springs take the sting off of rough bumps, but otherwise you don't notice them which is nice as it doesn't interupt your pedaling.

Saddle sores and chaffing are a thing of the past with the B67 and the best part is you don't need padded shorts. You can ride in boxers, but they bunched up too much for my liking. I prefer compression shorts underneath some loose shorts.

Also, it's best to tilt the nose of the saddle up a bit. The saddle seems more comfortable this way.

Strengths:    AIR CONDITIONING!!! No kidding, this saddle keeps your stuff very cool.

Bumps in the road? Gone!

It looks great--with that awesome feeling of non-better superb quality.

NO trouble with soft tissue. You can actually just wear your boxers and be totally comfortable. This is amazing!

Chafing? Gone!!

Wider platform makes for much extra hill-climbing power, without any need to stand up.


Weaknesses:    The first few rides are a torture that makes you believe you've made a mistake. However, suddenly, with no advance notice whatsoever, you discover that you're really comfortable.

It takes just about 3 rides for the break-in to start, and I didn't even proofide mine yet. But, I need to buy some Proofide because Brooks aren't naturally waterproof.
A minor weakness is that they need coated in proofide, once every six months.

Using any other treatment than proofide will make the cool, anti-chafing, air-conditioning effect stop working. Fortunately, I'm holding out for proofide.


Bottom Line:   
The Brooks is far lighter weight than any of the comparable Velo products, beating them all for comfort, temperature, and weight.

The Brooks did not beat the Schwinn Tyhpoon (a smallish crusier saddle) for comfort; however, the high horn of the Schwinn requires very high handlebars, wheras the flat Brooks will work with any handlebar height, including drop bars.

The Brooks beat the Sefaris RX so completely and totally, in everything that the Sefaris was advertised to do, and the Brooks is far lighter weight than heavy gel.

Raliegh's/Diamondback's Aveneir touring size (hybrid) saddle is very close in comfort to the Brooks. But, not even the Aveneir can keep you comfortable on an oilfield rock trail in 100 degree temperatures--but the Brooks can do it.

Strengths:    The saddle was comfortable from the start. It soaks up road shock and favors an upright posture which is helpful when my back is stiff.

Weaknesses:    The saddle is fairly heavy but not much more than a standard saddle with the added weight of a suspension seatpost. I prefer the narrower Brooks saddles on bikes with drop handlebars.

Bottom Line:   
This is the saddle on my comfort bike. I can ride this bike pain free when my other bikes would cause backpain.

Anybody have any experience with the Weyless B-37 MX or Wellgo Wam B67 Pedals?

Looking to get a new pair of pedals which have sealed bearings without breaking the bank. Just curious to see if they will hold up to alot of abuse.Read More »
