The Beauty of Brooks

One of the nicest things about Pashleys (aside from their handbuilt frames) is their choice to use Brooks for saddles.

Brooks are a handmade leather saddle maker from Smethwick in the West Midlands, UK and they make such beautiful things.  They started in 1866

My roadster will be coming with this saddle, which is the Brooks B33 - I mean, just look at it!

After breaking in this thing will be supremely comfortable and with care and attention it will last a lifetime.  Pretty good huh?

The sad thing is (as far as my wallet goes) is that Brooks dont only make saddles - you see I now want to kit the Pashley out with brooks accessories too!
