I kept hearing great things about Brooks saddles. I couldn't believe the quality would match the price. They looked so hard and uncomfortable. It was seemingly unanimous though that Brooks made the best saddles on the market. I decided to get a Brooks Swift and I'm very happy with it.
I lowered the seat just a nudge for the break in period, but after two rides it already feels comfortable. I can't wait to take it on some long trips.
I think it looks perfect on Via Brera. Very handsome. I'll put some more photos up soon.
