We have been having the most amazing Spring Break weather. It has been about 70 for the past 4 days. Needless to say the bikes have been coming out!

I received a nice annual dividend from REI, so I did some shopping. I figured out with both my dividend, I could purchase a new B17 Brooks saddle for a grand total of $4.00! I ordered it right away and I got the package yesterday.

The package included a Brooks spanner for tensioning saddles once they become loose, but they also included a copy of The Brooks Bugle. This saddle came with instructions, so I followed them and put Brooks Proofhide on the underside of the saddle as in the above picture.

I then rubbed some Proofhide into the top side of the saddle.

Here is the saddle that will be replaced.

Here is the 20 with its’ new B17 Brooks saddle, and its components recently polished. The test ride was great. Now I need to break the saddle in.
