Part of an old Brooks Tradition

I have a B67 fitted to my bike - its been on three different bikes now; I would never part with it. Bikes have come and gone but the saddle stays! It looks good, the springs have just the right level of 'bounce' when you need it most, and - most importantly - you simply forget its there. No saddle soreness, no feeling of 'relief' when you dismount - its as comfortable as it can be.

Hi. I have spent the last umpteen years using the ubiquitous mountain bike as a daily commuter plus weekend light off road,with all the light weight/gel saddled/ state of the art components ..etc that go with the mountain bike set. However recently I bought a Pashley Paramount (with modified Tube rider chainguard) The Paramount comes with a tan Brooks B67 as standard, which I initially thought of "a "bit old fashioned " with springs, leather and steel. After a couple of test cycles on the Pashley I could see (feel) why they had fitted the B67 as it suits the upright riding position superbly . I had given the saddle a couple of coats of proofhide and it seemed to bypass the "breaking in " period completely and has been comfortable since day one. I now find myself with a totally different style of cycling going with the bike instead of fighting against it and the Brooks saddle is mellowing down to a lovely rich patina. There was some saddle squeaking but a load of proofhide and a warm hair dryer stopped that. Top marks saddle and nice to see good product still made in the UK.

I bought this saddle when a progressive, degenerative back condition threatened to end my regular cycle commute. From day one, the saddle proved to be very comfortable and has allowed me to continue to ride on the pothole infested roads of SW London. My only criticism of the saddle is the creaking from the springs, which initially sounded like a loose bottom bracket, but have now increased in intensity to the point where pedestrians turn and look when I cycle past. To be fair, the problem is most notable when I'm climbing, largely because I'm now reduced to sitting in the saddle when I cycle up hill. However, despite the creaking springs, this is probably the still probably the best saddle I have owned.

Just bought a Brompton and although my first choice was the B17 saddle for its sleek appearance, I discovered it was too narrow to support my sit bones. So I chose this one instead and am very pleased with the comfort and springiness. I've put several long rides on it so far to see if it was going to be the right saddle and it passed the test. It looks beautiful on the bike too.

Of all the saddles I've tried from Brooks two sticks out as unique and great products: The Conquest, and the B68. I am delighted to see the former is now available again, and I will replace the one I gave to my brother. However I miss the B68! So, for now the B67 will be the best choice in it's place from the current catalogue. My B68 is mounted on my Brompy, a perfect match!

I was slightly reluctant to buy the Brooks saddle initially given that it seemed so heavy. I think most cyclists are conscious about buying light weight components for their bike and I’m no different. After trying 3 different saddles in a few months I was beginning to think that I had a unique and possibly deformed rear so I finally decided to try the B67. At first it felt very different but I persevered because I knew about the breaking in period. I have come to the conclusion that this seat is very sensitive to correct adjustment, in particular its angle. After some very careful adjustment and a few months of use I have just completed my longest ever ride of 70miles, my posterior was the only bit that wasn’t sore and I felt that I could have stayed in the saddle much longer. It is truly a product that I’m glad to have had the good fortune to discover and much better than I could ever have imagined. It is a great thing that we can still buy such a beautifully made classic British product that performs better than anything else that I have puchased.

Why are the metal parts of the regular B67 and a few similar models partly black and partly metallic in colour? Surely I'm not the only one who thinks the saddles look less appealing than they deserve to, that way?

I own a number of Brooks Saddles & overall I have to say they are the most comfortable I have used in 30 years of cycling,But I have one complaint,with saddles of this quality(& expense) why the use of black powder coat on the rails?,I know this is cheaper & you don't have the issues with the extra quality control that chrome requires but you use them on some saddles & not others. The B67 has chrome springs but black rails,this makes no sense & looks just plain wrong,I wish to purchase a new saddle for my city bike & like the B67 but would like to have it with chrome rails to match the rest of my bike(& itself).I would quite happily pay the small amount of extra cost that this would require(as I am sure most other riders would).So Brooks when are you going to give this saddle the classy look it deserves & make the metalwork shiny all over.

I just got my first B67 for my Raleigh Sports after using (and loving) a B17 for my fixie for many years. The springs are surprisingly stiff. Granted, that is better than the boucing and bottoming out I experienced on the matress saddle that had been fitted on the bike when I bought it, but it really isn't providing much shock absorption. Will the springs have more give over time? I'm a solid 16 stone, so I would imagine this is even more of an issue for smaller folks.

Easy on the rear but hard on the ears.

Very comfortable but the noise was too much for me, and now the saddle is sitting on the shelf.

If you like a quiet morning ride on a rolling country lane, then do not get a sprung saddle.

Lesson learned.
A> if you use lubricant on the rails and where it meets the clamp this should resolve this problem

I bought a B67 about a year ago when I rebuilt my 531 frame tourer. It has broken in well, and I finally traced a persistent squeak to where the leather wraps over the rear frame. A few drops of lanolin oil did the trick (Proofide would not flow in). I tightened the bolts at the lower end of the springs, and noticed that the loop through which the bolts pass was spreading as the nut tried to go through the loop. Also the springs are wound the same way - one should be the mirror of the other. I think that Brooks need to re-engineer the detail of these fittings with a heavy washer and better formed bolt eye - the price warrants it, and the engineering really does look very dated in this area. Having said that, the qualities of the leather seat are not to be doubted, and I have ridden mine for 1,000 miles now in comfort.
