Gear Gallery……Brooks Saddle video

with one comment

After writing the previous post on bicycle saddles, I discovered this video about the Brooks’ manufacturing company over at The Velo Hobo. It’s a quaint look at the company behind this iconic piece of cycling history. (Skip to the 7:23 mark of the video to see the very cartoon-like English guy in charge of leather chamfering. He’s great).

  1. I love my Brooks saddles. It takes a leap of faith to go from a soft foam-filled saddle to a piece of leather strung between a metal frame. It also takes an investment in time and a little discomfort till the thing breaks in…but well worth it.

    Thanks, Jack (velo hobo)
