January 2014


I have had this saddle for several months now, ever since it was first introduced by Brooks.  I purchased one of the original allotment of 500 that were released. I am not going to do the type of typical product review that you often get with new products. Instead, my assessment will be an ongoing test over a period of time and not just a quick first impression. All too often you can buy a product that you like and think will work well for you only to discover through time and use, its flaws or shortcomings.

January is the month of early season rides and getting back into shape for the year of cycling to come. This is the month that I usually go to Arizona or California to ride, but this year I chose California and the Rainbow 200 km brevet in San Diego. I did this ride in 2011 and remembered enjoying it very much so I thought it deserved another go. Once again, I would not be disappointed with the event.
