Add 370 grams of class to your ride with the Brooks Women's Finesse Saddle. This leather saddle is part of the Brooks England range, which incorporates proven tour techniques to lengthen the life of the leather. Copper rivets are gentler to the leather top and contrast stylishly with the color of the leather. Brooks' skilled craftsmen hand hammer the rivets, so you can rest assured that a craftsman's careful hands caressed the place where you sit.

Strengths: Classic beauty, timeless design.
Weaknesses: Too small and delicate for my big old butt, it is supposed to be a women's saddle after all.

Problem is this is a women's saddle and my big old butt hangs over the edges pretty bad so it wasn't that comfy for me. I moved on to a Swift and I am all about loving Brooks saddles.
I still have it, when my squeeze and I get out two-seater up and running it is going on the stokers post and I think she will be a little happier with it than I was.

Now, unfortunately, I'm having to sell it for need of cash. At first my asking price was $400 ... Read More »
LBS has a few of these for sale. The only one my size is the owner's personal one which he said had less than two hundred miles on it and he'd sell for $1000 (they list for $1800 new). I really like the bike but not sure if my first one after getting back into cycling should be so pricey. What do yo ... Read More »

Are you a finesse rider or a power/speed rider?
Have you changed from one to the other? Why? How?
In my own case I changed from being a power/speed rider to more of a finesse rider some years ago. I ride much better over all, have better balance, and more success at cleaning some technical ... Read More »
