Recently completed a 500 mile tour and using one of these saddles was the best decision I made, and now they are 25% off. Other models are available.

Brooks B17 Mens Bike Saddle Product Description

The Brooks B17 Standard Mens Bike Saddle is the flagship model in the Brooks range, having been a best seller for decades with a traditional yet stylish design. The undoubted superiority of Brooks saddles is largely due to their flawless quality in every detail. The leather is absolutely the best obtainable and is thoroughly adapted for its purpose. Retention of shape, and even improvement after the break in period, is the crucial test of a leather top and is one of the chief characteristics of Brooks saddles. A broken-in Brooks is the only saddle whose shape becomes truly yours. Halfords have a great range of Bike Accessories and Bike Saddles at competitive prices!

How many miles did you ride to break it in, before the 500 mile tour?

my B17 has about 28000km on it, so i beat you! Nice saddle, obviously takes a wee bit to break in, but after that it is a comfy as a sofa.
if i was thinking of buying another, i would get the one with the large copper rivets.

probably won't go down well on this site, as if you have just paid £40 in argos for a full suspension cast iron 'mountain' bike, why would you spend £50 on a saddle that will out last you and the bike.
