Default Re: Brooks saddle

I used the Brooks B73 (first link) and it was the best seat I have used. I think it has plenty of springs but maybe Oskar383 is right that more are better. The leather needs some treatment and ahundred or more miles to break in usually. Brooks sells Proof Hide but Mink Oil water proofing helps too. Brooks has been very well finished both leather and steel / brass parts as long as I sold and used them.
