Part of an old Brooks Tradition

I just got the saddle the other day and it is typical of Brooks, the quality is great. I got it out of the box and it looks fantastic. Will be putting it on my bike this weekend and going for a ride right after.



Have had Brooks saddles in the past and they are with out a doubt the most comfortable saddles in the world.

Nice saddles! There's a tiny problem, though... I need three bikes in three matching color schemes to enjoy all three; the blue, the red and the white!

Just got the White One. It fulfilled my tokyobike as the most Japanese color's favorite. White is beauty, humble but nice like Japanese.

How to keep the withe color years after years? I use my bicycle every days (more than 8.000 km/ year) and Iam afraid that the colour becomes grey. Do you have a special product to fix definitifly the colour?

Look fantastic and unique , realy modern in a actual carbone bike, and the confort is wonderful! After 4.000 km, I use every month a white higt quality product for shoes to keep it beautiful, because otherwize it come grey. Why don't you sel a special coloured product for your specific saddles, and certainly the Editions ones? please consider my suggestion, I think a lot of people are interesting of it!

I'm tempted by this saddle in white but do you have any info or pics on how the white saddles wear?



Will it lose its colour or turn grey if I ride on it with jeans on etc?



Thanks

I work as a full-time, professional bicycle mechanic and recently built up a beautiful 1986 Colnago Master. I decided on white Brooks bar tape and a white Swallow saddle to compliment the vintage aesthetic. My saddle arrived and all was good until I viewed the saddle nose on; whoever manufactured my particular saddle managed to rivet the steel mount which the tension bolt passes through off centre, so the nose of the saddle gradually twists toward the right. It looks clumsy, rushed and certainly not worth the £200 I paid for it. Having been a proud owner of a B17 on my tourer for over five years I was not expecting this sort of lax attention to detail from Brooks.



And after one ride, just one, the white finish has started to rub away from the saddle. I'm genuinely disappointed and am considering whether I'll bother buying a Brooks again.
