Part of an old Brooks Tradition

I have the B33 on my Pashley Phantom and I must say it’s as if my buttocks are held aloft by the hands of an angel. The bike can be ridden all day long in total comfort.

Question- what is real difference between B33 and B190 for cruiser bike? B190 is wider and what about comfort?
Answer- the top of the B190 is much larger, therefore more comfortable for someone looking for a larger seating area.

The B33 is, to my opinion a piece of art - not only beautifully crafted but surprisingly comfortable too. However i wonder whether it would be worth considering a more secure/ thief repellent way of fitting this saddle to the bike (a Pushley Sovereign in my case). I have been enjoying riding on both these for the past six months but unfortunately my B33 was recently stolen in the very brief time I left it out of my sight - a huge disappointment.

Seat security when unattended.
Hi. I can surely relate to the frustration of having my Brooks saddle stolen when unattended. I have found some useful bits--security nuts with a recessed pentagonal key to required to loosen it. Have a look for yourself: http://www.brycefastener.com/penta-nut.html

COMPLAINT > I bought a Pashley bike which came with the saddle B33 but to my astonishment the twisted coil spring snapped at the base of the saddle. It does make me wonder whether I was just unlucky or standards and quality of the famous Brooks Craftmanship have started deteriorating. No doubt I may hear excuses such as this is the first time it has happened to the saddle. The bottom line is that I should not have had such an experience within the space of twelve months. Warranty or no warranty quality always speaks for itself without the need to bolster it with some means of extricating oneself from a supposedly good product.
 
REPLY > It is not the first time a spring has broken, that's why we offer them as spare parts. Conventional modern saddles can be thrown away if anything breaks, Brooks saddles can be repaired.  Hopefully this speaks in favour of the good reputation of our products. The problem you describe occurs more often on the B33, because the stranded springs are both right hand coils. All other Brooks Saddles have one left and one right hand coil spring, giving more stability and perfect symmetry to the structure. The two right hand coil springs of the B33 are responsible for the occasional breakage of one of them. Because we know that this can happen, we are now making new tools to be able to produce a left hand coil spring. This is not an easy job, as our machines in the metal department date back as far as the 1940s and 1950s. If you watch the video on the "SADDLES" page, this should not be too difficult to grasp. To solve your problem please post your claim in the GETTING IN TOUCH section and a colleague will help you to get a new spring.

Last year I bought a Pashely Roadster Sovereign, a beautiful bike with a beautiful and comfortable saddle.

I have a problem with the triple-railed saddle clamp that the Brooks B33 saddle is supplied with.

The seat clamp can come loose and change the seat angle. I tightened the clamp bolts many times but I still have the same problem.
A > You must make certain this clamp is very, very, tight.

I see some comments about the B33 getting lifted from peoples bikes, I just picked mine up and a U lock fits through the front spring and around the frame of my bike perfectly

I love the B33, but....... The right rear spring broke for the third time (the second time this year). I'm not a light weight (105 kg), but that's why I bought a heavy duty saddle. Maybe it's not heavy duty enough. Should I replace it for a B190?

I wish you still made the b33 in dark brown with black springs like the one I used to have.
