Product Description

Brooks Saddles B66 is among Brook's most loved products, having been on the market since 1927. Classically sprung with double rails for supreme comfort, B66 is the ideal all-rounder for daily city or touring use in a rather upright posture. It is the most appropriate for cyclists who set their handlebars higher than their saddles. In general, the more upright your riding posture, the wider, and more heavily sprung, the saddle you should choose. This black leather saddle has tubular steel rivets, and weighs 1045 grams.

It really makes my bike look great and is super comfortable.

That's what this seat is made for, sitting upright so the springs absorb all the bumps on the road.

I was pretty dubious about Brooks saddles until I inherited my dad's Raleigh Sports. The original Brooks was gone so I purchased a replacement for it because I was restoring it to like new condition for sentimental reasons.

From the very first minute this saddle was more comfortable than any other bike saddle I've ever used. It has only gotten better as it has broken in. Now I want to put a Brooks on my primary bike too.

Pros:

*Firm wide leather hide saddle has plenty of support for your sit bones and cradles your behind rather than sitting on an overstuffed bean-bag that rides up your crack.
*Spring suspension makes riding an upright bike a breeze even on pothole-strewn urban streets.
*Double-rail construction of the B66 gives more frame support and less flex where it isn't supposed to be -especially for heavier riders in the upright riding position.
*Long-lasting performance. A properly cared-for Brooks will last you nearly a lifetime -It might even outlive you if you aren't an everyday rider.

Cons:

*Leather saddles require somewhat regular maintenance with Proofhide leather treatment to stay supple and so they don't dry out or get saturated with moisture. It isn't zero-maintenance like a cheap vinyl/plastic saddle.
*The leather needs to be protected from the elements. Don't leave this seat out in the rain uncovered or even ride in the rain without covering the bottom of the saddle as well as the top. Water will cause the leather to stretch and ruin the tension and shorten the lifespan. Proofhide helps protect against moisture in the air or sweat but can't stop rain. A simple plastic bag will do the trick, tied snug around the seatpost.

I replaced the original seat of my 1972 Schwinn steel framed Racer. If you're not familiar, the Racer is a city bike, you sit very upright like a Dutch bike. That's what this seat is made for, sitting upright so the springs absorb all the bumps on the road. It's like riding an entirely different bike. This saddle is unbelievably comfortable, you may not think so by looking at it, one molded piece of hard leather, but, ergonomically it's amazing. And the large springs make even Chicago's horribly maintained city streets easy to bike on. I go over any one of the 673 major bumps in the road on my 2 mile commute and the springs absorb all of the shock. Definitely recommended, was planning to replace my bike but this seat changed my riding experience, worth every penny.

Installation was easy, it comes with enough hardware to fit old to new bikes, I did it myself in about 10 minutes. It's a good idea to use a better wrench than what they include. You also may want to consider a small seat lock if you're leaving the bike locked and unattended.

I actually have a difficult time imagining how this design could be improved. My first Brooks saddle was a B72 which I purchased in 1977. It was far and away the most comfortable saddle I'd ever used up to that point, but I didn't ever apply any type of leather dressing to it, and eventually the leather dried out and cracked around the rivets. I purchased this B66 as a replacement, and have been riding it for more than 10 years now, being careful to apply Brooks Proofide from time to time. After more than 10 years of use, it still looks almost perfectly new, with just a slight "polishing" of the rivets visible.

This is a fairly wide saddle, 210 mm, and well suited for bikes with an essentially upright riding position. I've got it installed on an old mountain bike whose handlebars are a couple of inches higher than the saddle. I have used lower handlebars on this bike in the past, even level with the saddle, and it works equally well, just needing a small adjustment on the tilt. Either way, I can literally ride for hours without any sort of soreness or numbness. The firm leather provides exactly the right amount of support, flexing just enough beneath you to distribute pressure over a wide area, instead of concentrating it in a small area.
The twin coil springs in the back do a nice job of absorbing some of the shocks which get past the tires. Like the leather, they are somewhat firm, but they provide a noticeably smoother ride.

Additionally, the leather does not seem to trap much body heat, and in fact has three small "ventilation" holes on the top, so feels noticeably cooler when riding in warm weather.

This saddle has four thick wires forming the base, which attach to the clamp. The clamp is designed to be used on old-style "straight" seatposts.

This is my first leather saddle, and I was surprised to find that it fit so well. It does take a few weeks to break it in, but it is not as awful as one may think. In the end you have a long-lasting and comfortable bike seat. Don't forget to get some "Proofide".

This is just what I wanted. An old school look to my newcruiser bicycle. I am pleased with it, only that it took a couple of times of trial and error to get it tight enough on the seat post. There are other companies that offer the same type of seat for less $. Hopefully this seat will prove to be better than the knock offs. Other than that I would recommend it to others.
