- Q & A
Can't Say Enough Good Things
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This seat is comfortable and classic. I actually prefer to ride without my chamois with this seat, which is something I only did on short rides with previous seats. It wears in to your sit bones and gets more and more comfortable with time. This is definitely a buy it for life item.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Got this for my dad to go on his steel Bianchi. The shape and materials are classic and the ride can't be beat. Molds to your body after some use and is a great ally to chock up the miles.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
It is incredible quality with fine attention to detail. The only reason a four star, I haven't ridden it yet!
I will follow up with another review in a few months after it is broken in and properly tested.
I'm 75, getting back into biking long...
I'm 75, getting back into biking long distances, on a cruiser. My butt hurts. I read that a Brooks leather saddle will cure that, over time. A B17N was recommended. How do I choose the style and size? I'm male, 5'10", 170 #.
