classic! Looks like a good price don't know why it's cold....

I've owned a fairly well broken in B17 and they're nice. However, when replacing it I got this -- spacycles.co.uk/m2b…dle -- the leather is certainly hard wearing, and may need a little bit more attention when breaking in, but it's all-in-all very good quality. Seems they now do a B68 copy on Spa Cycles as well... interesting.

I've seen B17s go for around 50, and generally wouldn't pay more than that for a saddle.

This is sexist! Purely to balance things up, here's a saddle for women. http://i0.wp.com/www.whaleoil.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/H.jpg

I got my Brooks B17 saddle for just £50


... and got a free bike attached to it too!

You could always get one of these if you want to experience new levels of ass pain -- it's a Brooks B18... so it's one better really.

I once (in 1981) rode my fixie between Huddersfield and Sheffield and back sat on one of these and after this my pudendum (gooch/barse) felt like it had been kicked in by a 100 men with hob nailed boots. But I'm sure it's a nice saddle if you break it in properly. Price is good - heat added.

​Mm exactly. If the event is close then don't use the saddle for it and before it because you won't break it in enough or it will cause you quite a lot of pain.

I have one of these
wiggle.co.uk/bro…le/
But it's still a real pain in the ****.....

It seems that for a saddle to be really good it has to be very uncomfortable. I can't help but think that I am missing something here?

If you've seen B17s new for £50, why would you buy a copy for £38?

Because I'm not rich enough for £12 not to matter to me.

Nowt wrong with saving money, but my comment was really trying to say show me a link to a £50 Brooks saddle, cos I aint seen one at that price for a long time.I bought mine 2 years ago for £63 and thought that was good.

I'm not saying there are any now, which is why I'm not voting either way. The price above is fairly common, so it represents the real market value, rather than a really good deal.
