Part of an old Brooks Tradition

Over the last 15 years I have commuted over 20,000 kms on my brooks flyer. It has provided exceptional comfort in three of ways, Firstly, the suspension has dramatically reduced the shocks from riding Sydneys rough roads. Secondly, in the humid summer heat, this leather saddle "breathes" like no other eliminating sweaty saddle rash. Thirdly, after breaking in, a short period compared to the life of the saddle, it provides an incredibly supportive and comfortable fit. Just remember to pop a shower cap over it when it rains. Recommened without reservation.

I recently had my wonderful B17 Imperial stolen, and I thought I'd give the Flyer a ride. It is impeccably smooth, but my buttock geometry prefers the Imperial. It would be nice to get the Imperial with the Flyer's springs, and while we're on it, maybe a Select version? How sweet would that be?
> Thanks for the feedback!

My Brooks Flyer arrived a few days ago. I purchased it to replace a B17 that was stolen,along with my touring bicycle, I will be heading out on a 9000 plus mile tour of the states this winter and can not imagine sitting on anything other than a brooks.

I have found them to be comfortable right out of the box, and they only improve.

i bought my first Brooks saddle a few days ago.(Flyer), after the original saddle from my Batavus bike broke after 7000km and a nasty pothole. I was somewhat anxious to get the Brooks , as the original Batavus was very comfy.

On the first 3 miles, i started to regret my purchase since feeling riding on a astone. However, this week end i put about 80 miles, and i believe this has been the best money spent. The springs are absorbing well all the atrociaus bumbs and holes from our poorly maintained Toronto streets... Comfort is surpassing the previous cushy one saddle. I do regret i did not equipped my bike with the Flyer way earlier .

I'm wondering if i'm not going to buy the B17 for second bike ( folding) Another investment to think about!

I just bought Brooks Flyer Honey Brown and ridden it for 10 miles and i have to say that it is by far most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden and if it just gets better with years then it's worth every penny I paid for it, also love the proofide;

First day out of the box, rode the Houston MoonLight Ramble and the Flyer was as comfortable has my B17 from years ago.... I was worried that this ride was the wrong time to try a new saddle, but as all the other comments I have read....it didn't need a break in period! sweet!

i have really loved all of my Brooks saddles I have owned. For my new commuter bike last year, I bought a Flyer expecting the comfort inherent in a Brooks saddle. I am not disappointed in that. Even long rides on my commuter bike are a joy.



The only problem I have is with a squeak in the Flyer's springs. Every pedal stroke, every bump, every pebble causes the saddle frame to squeak. While everything works fine and comfort is considerable, I wish there were a way to get rid of the spring noise. I wonder whether others have this problem.

I enjoy the Flyer. But, the Conquest was a good saddle too. Why was the Conquest discontinued and replaced with Flyer, when they both are different shapes? The flyer is more for an upright sitting, and, the Conquest better serves the cyclist whose seat is higher than the handlebar. It would make much more sense if there was a choice between the Flyer and the Conquest. Bring back the Conquest and its copper rivet version. (also, maintain the Classic springs)
A> The Conquest will resume production in 2013!

I bought the flyer and use it for long distance touring and it's pretty comfortable but i had to notice that it's better for bikes where you're sitting in an upright position. Unfortunately it's too wide for my (rather sporty) position and it cuts off the blood circulation in my thighs after a while...
