Part of an old Brooks Tradition

Perfect seat. I loved it from the first glance. Looks awesome on my cruiser and it is unique, because not much people in my country knew about Brooks, and even less people loves classic style.

Brooks B135, draufsetzen und sich wohlfühlen. Biken ohne Brooks-Sattel ist möglich - aber nicht sinnvoll!

Viele Grüße

TRANSLATION > Brooks B135, sit on it and feel well. Riding without a Brooks Saddle is possible, but not sensible!

Come to holland see these old full suspension heavy duty brooks! They are so worn out and dip in the middle. Each saddle tells a story...of the riders butt! I have 4 Brooks now, a b17, b72, B73 and of course..the brooks b5n. Keep riding!

A> A motorcycle saddle is considerably wider, we do not recommend this.

I notice on the B190 page, the advice was given not to use that saddle with a Brompton. Does the same apply for this saddle?
A> Yes.  This advice would applpy to all saddles from the Unique line, excepting the Swallow. Go for a B67 for your Brompton!

I recently purchased a B135 for our cargo bike because we are so pleased with our B17 specials and Cambium C17's. The B135 was unbelievably comfortable from the first ride. However, after a week, the saddle tilted backwards when I went over a bump on the path. No amount of tightening or adjustment would keep the saddle in place after that. When we compared the seat clamp to that on a cheap kid's seat, the manufacturing quality appeared considerably poorer in that of the B135. We are really disappointed that such a well-known and (normally) high-quality brand of saddle has used such a poor quality seat clamp. We would have expected the price we paid for the saddle to be evident in every component, as it has in our other Brooks saddles.

The saddle repeatedly failed to stay in place while riding. Most often, the tilt would change, kicking the front of the saddle upward when weight was placed at the back of the frame. I tried repeatedly tightening the clamp nuts without much effect. The factory nuts eventually stripped the cross-bolt.



Having a saddle rapidly and unexpectedly change angle to a significant degree while riding can be a safety hazard. I was fortunate that in all cases, my Brooks B135 tilted but slightly and then stopped, but make no mistake - it could have been worse! The situation is exacerbated by the fact that Brooks specifically recommends the B135 as a "heavy duty" saddle, but heavy riders are the ones for whom the factory clamp is most likely to be inadequate.



Brooks should redesign the clamp of the B135 with a larger through-bolt and larger nuts to avoid this type of failure. The factory 13mm clamp nuts are inadequate for the recommended riders.

I would also buy a B190 if it came in the honey color.

My Honey Brown B135 has been comfortably supporting me for a little over two years on my daily commute. I use a Brooks rain cover when parked in the wet and Proof hide as recommend. The leather has broken in beautifully. Unfortunately after the first year of use, after approximately 3000 kilometres, the front bolt which connects the black nose spring to the saddle frame sheared. Thankfully it happened as I was mounting the bike and not whilst moving. Finding a replacement proved a little difficult but not impossible. After this happened I visibly checked all the other bolts and tightened any that seemed loose. (but not the bolt that stretches the leather) Despite this the saddle is louder than mouse porn! Each spring squeaks and creaks in time to every pedal stroke. Putting proof hide on the springs has only seemed to make it worse as they seem to move even more. A noisy saddle is comfortable but not fun to ride. :-(
