To non-cyclist this probably looks like a worn-out bike seat, but to avid cyclists this saddleappears to haveincalculable miles of distinguished use, and is a testament to superior craftsmanship. A Brooks saddle is a finely crafted leather accessory sought after by many cycling enthusiasts. This one looks like it has lived a life of heavy duty proportions. Bravo on your photo.

This is my Brooks saddle and Brooks saddlebag. The bike is a folding Giant Halfway. I been using Brooks saddles for more than sixty years and still use Brooks on most of my bikes now.
