Obviously I know the new build should have a Brooks saddle, but in the interests of economy I´m tryingto keep an open mind about these things. I just want something comfortable that I can use with or without padded shorts. I read good things about the Charge Stool which is just £21.99. I´ve tried it on my Ribble and it´s dead comfortable. Unfortunately it´s designed for hybrid bikes so I´m getting a lot of stick!
But the Brooks saddles do look lovely. Forget the 500g weight!
And it's Father's Day soon!
[UPDATE: Went halves with Mrs El Presidente on Father´s Day. Result! It'll be the dark brown Professional then.]
