- Brooks saddle.
Swallow until recently adorned ma fixeh skidda. Submerged once to often and I need to reshape it, I have a very aysemtrical arse if the sagging is anything to go by.
Its very comfortable but turbos, flites, rolls, spoons etc I also find very comfortable my posterior is easy?!
Lovely things, heavier that the sun though.Posted 4 years agokcalSubscriber
been trying out some Brooks saddles and have to say they’re pretty good though finding a good fit for one’s ar$e is key. e.g. tried a standard B17 but way too wide. Swift was good but it might have been quite a used one, again felt it was a tad wide.
Have just obtained a Swallow and impressions are good, support is great; pressure on sit bones at the moment but still to give it some miles.
I’m sure I read on the Brooks site that Swift / B17 was MTB or at least sit up target, while Swallow as more road / stretched out intended. makes some sense from above..Posted 4 years agostAn-Bad Brains MBCMember
Got a B17 narrow on my tourer that I use nearly everyday. Very comfortable with or without padded shorts [not tried it naked yet, but will report back accordingly].
I did have one on my hardtail for a while. It was comfy, but to be honest it took a proper battering and despite the proofide and the use of a rain cover, after getting soaked wet through and covered in mud/grit three times a week, it soon became overstretched, and an eyesore too.
Would I recommend one …Posted 4 years ago
For a tourer/commuter/fixie most definitely, for a road bike possibly, off road bike – no.
