Guess what I'm test riding for a few days?

A Brook's B-67S for Woman.  I am still on the fence for this one as it's a bit wider then the B-17.   But the shop owner was nice enough to let me borrow it for a few days to try it out.  I have seen some touring bikes with it on  Just have to see how it feels.  It'll be hard as it takes time to break in, but I want to get a sense about the width for my bum.  It's definitely different!

Squirt's enjoying the Autumn ride.

I want to give it to myself for Christmas, so now is the time to test ride it, beforehand.  I would really appreciate any thoughts about the B-67S or the B-17S with Springs.  What do you prefer?

I figure that wearing my current seat out after 2 1/2 years, it'll be nice not to have to worry about that again!  I'll have to buy a seat one way or another for next Season.  And I'd rather spend my money on items I like, rather then toss money out on stuff that I don't.  I will let you know what I think about it after trying it out for a while.  This goes along with all the customizing that I've done with her already, ie upgrading the tires, handle grips, pedals, etc. The last thing that needs to be done!


  1. I wonder if a few days is worth doing with a saddle you have to break in... I suppose if its OK now, it will likely be great when broken in; then again...

  2. It certainly won't be as comfortable until it's broken in. People think I'm crazy when they feel the seat, it's so hard! They think it should be have cushions on it. :) But I want to have the general feel of it. It is a bit wider in the back then on the b-17, so I want to see how it feels on my butt, being wider then the seat that came with my bike.

    I've been riding around with it doing my
    errands, get a feel of it.

    I bet that if I get this seat, this will be the one I get unless the shop sells it beforehand. :)
