"Cycle Touring - Saddle" Devon Transportation Tip by travelinxs

Devon Transportation: 27 reviews and 32 photos


The only modification I made to the bike is the saddle. I bit the bullet and went for a Brooks B17 pure leather saddle, much to the amusement of the shop assistant. They say that it can take 500 miles to brake these babies in when they will become the most comfortable saddle in existence, though in the interim they will be hell to sit on. Surprisingly, I found no real problems from the start, and I just love it. The fact that this model has been in production since 1898 says it really is a classic!
