Part of an old Brooks Tradition

B190
I recently bought a B190 to replace the rather uncomfortable saddle that came with my vintage-style grandma bike. The 190 is generous in size and was comfortable right from the start, albeit a little slippery, but the slipperiness soon recedes with use. I was worried that the saddle might be so big as to look out of proportion on my bike, but in fact it looks just right (pics here - http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i199/bubcar9/B190c.jpg http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i199/bubcar9/B190d.jpg ). If you're a big person with a big bike and a big bum, you'll find this saddle very agreeable. As you'd expect with such generous springing, it squeaks a little. But it's a deep-toned, masculine sort of squeak, reassuring rather than annoying.

I bought this saddle as the capstone to my Surly Big Dummy build and with a 230lb frame and upright position I figured the bigger the better. When it arrived I marveled at its size(it's huge) and weight(a mere 4lbs of my bikes 71lb build) but once installed; Day 1: Amazing comfort, Day 30: Even better, Day 30+: I can't imagine it not getting better and better.

In summary the most comfortable saddle I have ever ridden hands down, game over.

I love the B190, but I also like the double springs in the B33. So why not take both? I did! http://www.vongole.nl/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/ipad-002.jpg

Built for Comfort, not for Speed
My wife has a B190 on her 1950's German bicycle. It is fantastically comfortable .. like sitting on a sofa while you ride. When brand new it is a bit slippery, but this soon goes away. Some flex in the leather, together with the springs, mean you are suspended above the road. Not a performance saddle by any means... it's built for comfort.

If you have a bicycle worthy of the B190 (like an Electra Townie), then adding the B190 to it is the best move you can make. It's big, it's heavy and it's expensive but it is absolute heaven for your butt. It's like a vacation for your butt, leaving you to just enjoy the ride.

The Brooks B190 saddle fits on modern single bolt seatposts using the Breezer Double Rail Adapter available through any bike shop and many mail order outlets. QBP part# ST5303. Brooks, I can email you a photo for your reference showing the B190 on a conventional seatpost.

I would like to know if this saddle could be placed on any common bike .

Can it be done without any professional assistance ?

Can I do it myself?



A> Installation of the B190 is quite easy, but it requires that you use an older "seat pillar" style seatpost.

The biggest heaviest saddle by Brooks is a disappointment. I knew it was overweight & that's fine.

I bought it because my 1st bike 1958 was my Dads old one that had a round spring at the front.

Somehow this B190 is not comfortable at all. I have several other Brooks that I use & they are all fine.

I thought this big one would be the best of them all , but it ain't.

There is also the super crummy old fashioned clamp , that let go throwing the saddle straight up.

This B190 here is for sale without clamp ( gone in garbage).

I realize some anatomy's don't fit on certain designs , so those who find it comfortable, don't have to not get it.

Is the B190 suitable for fitting to a Brompton, well what I really mean is will the saddle clamp fit the Brompton seat post also is it too much suspension for a Brompton as I tour and do a lot of long distance rides on tow paths and badly maintained cycle paths and I wouldn't want to be bounced off the bike. Many Thanks.
A> It is absolutely not to be used with a Brompton.
