Talk about a mainstay, the B17 has been the most popular Brooks saddle model for over 100 years. Its leather cover feels hard at first but after time will perfectly conform to a rider's shape, making it one of the most comfortable options around. Classic styling that looks great on any bike with a superior feel and an economical price tag.

  • 280mm x 170mm
  • Available in various colors, all with black steel rails.

I ordered the honey color, which in the photograph looks a little orange, so I'm happy to announce that it is a beautiful medium brown that matches the Brooks handle bar tape very well. It's winter so I can't speak to it's much comfort because its been to cold to get out too often. But I'm confident that it will be perfect come biking season!

I ride a hybrid bicycle 400 miles per month on city streets and bicycle trails. The Brooks B17 provides an excellent balance of comfort, weight and rigidity for my style of riding, and requires - in my case - no break-in period. I enthusiastically recommend the Brooks B17 saddle to other riders.

This seat is just plain comfortable. It allows me to ride without pain on gravel and road riding. Needs a few miles to break in, then it works very well.

I ride 270 miles per month on city streets and bike trails. The Brooks B17 provides an ideal combination of comfort, weight, and durability for the kind of low-to-moderate speed bicycle riding I do. Westernbikeworks price is agreeable, too.

I love the style of the seat and the use of natural material. The workmanship is a lost art form and it gives real class to my 1970 Raleigh Pro and my new Tokyobike. Add Brooks hand grips for some real class

Best saddle over 15 years of cycling. It is firm at first. Slowly breaking in. I've tried 8 different saddles. This is the one for everyone. I will not use anything but brooks.

Say what? You want me to review a classic Brooks saddle. They have only been around foreeevvveeerr, and logged more successful and comfortable a$$ miles than most other saddles combined. Nuff said.

Hi, I labored over choosing a saddle. Bottom line, I have extensive issues with surgery in the lower region (use your imagination). I was very concerned over saddle selection because of so much scaring. With this saddle no part of the saddle is able to make its way up into you rear end and irritate you. Only your rear bones touch the saddle. Exactly what I needed. I was unable to ride around the block with a Selle San Marco without irritation. I did 30 miles yesterday on my Brooks B17 without even thinking about my rear end or the saddle. Also, there is no numbing the groin area.

Negatives the saddle is hard and not light. But I think the design is what makes it work. The weight penalty is worth the ability to ride without issue. This will be the only saddle I use for the remainder of my cycling years.

The Best saddle for touring. Solid, yet comfortable. It requires some maintenance since it is leather. With a Super price & quick delivery from Westernbike Bike Works, this deal made my day!

I bought a B-17 for my single speed to give it a more retro look. I had a team professional as a kid on my Raleigh Professional MKIV but took it off, too hard and never seemed to break in.

I bought the B-17 because of all the great reviews and figured I'd give Brooks another try.

OMG right out of the box with ZERO break in it was comfortable. I think the fact I'm no longer a 150 lbs skinny teenager helps. Now at 190lbs I felt the seat immediately start to mold. I can't wait to see how it feels a few 100 miles from now. I think I'll replace the saddle on my road bike with a Brooks Swift. Go ahead buy one!

Great price for a great saddle.

Brooks has been around and is preferred by many who know the secret to comfortable riding. Gel and other materials that make your saddle softer or more comfortable are ultimately making you more uncomfortable in the end. It's a great big lie that many people fall into. I have seen many people buy a new bike with a decent saddle and then they buy a gel saddle cover before riding the bike for the first time. Bollocks!

Sit on a sound piece of supple leather that supports you where you need support without cushion and you couldn't be happier after a long day of touring with another long day to follow that one.

Day after day.

It does take a few miles (100 or so?) to break in any good saddle so expect it, fight through it, and stay the course.
