Brooks Baby!

Brooks on the Swobo Sanchez

Yes, it’s fixed gear Friday!! Check out my new acquisition for my Swobo Sanchez:

A beautiful Brooks B17 Saddle:

I wanted to customize my Swobo Sanchez with a retro-modern look so I added the faux leather grips and the real leather saddle.

I also bought their care kit, it comes with a tension wrench, a nice polishing cloth and the proofide. According to the instructions, it takes 3-6 months for the saddle to break-in, but once it has broken-in, it should mold to my ass nicely.

The Swobo Sanchez is quickly becoming one of my favorite bikes, not because it’s so cool, but I really enjoy the ride.

    Congratulations and welcome to saddle nirvana! As long as you got yourself a model of Brooks that actually makes contact under your “sit bones” (I am assuming you at least sat on ti first, yes?), you’ll never regret the choice. They start out good, and only get better. I ride nothing else, though the Selle An-Atomica is every bit as good, and made in the USA.

    Nice… I just scored one on ebay (same color) for my new 925! Great saddle selection!

    I got my saddle on Ebay as well so I hadn’t sat on it until yesterday. After a few adjustments, the saddle is very comfortable. I’m also looking into getting one of those little Brooks bags that attach to the saddle, but man, they are pricey!
