Re: Scored an english armstrong
The basic Raleigh saddle is still a nice saddle and is certainly comfortable enough. They can be improved by recovering in leather when the vinyl covering inevitably comes to pieces.
The saddles found on English bikes are many with some brand names being less known that others. Brooks is of course the most well known, but I also have bikes with Terry (which you have seen) and Middlemore saddles. The 'Middlemore' saddle always makes me smile whenever I see it because Middlemore is also the name of one our major hospitals specialising in the treatment of limb fractures here in New Zealand.
