Item specifics

Condition: Used  
We are selling some of the Brooks saddles that have been returned under the terms of our "six month unconditional guarantee." Most of these saddles are lightly used. We will try to supply good pictures and accurate descriptions. Returns privileges are very limited. Please make sure you want this saddle before you bid.

You are bidding on a black Brooks Champion Flyer leather bicycle saddle. It is in excellent condition with little signs of use and it comes with tension spanner. The retail price on this saddle is $120.

The Champion Flyer is the sprung version of the popular B17 model. It is an excellent saddle for touring and all-around riding. It is most appropriate when the handlebars are near level with the saddle.

The Brooks coil springs are very stiff. This is so that you don't bounce around during normal riding on smooth roads or from from pedaling. The springs react when your back wheel takes a sharp blow, like a pothole, expansion joint, curb bump, etc, on the road. The force of that blow against the riders weight will compress the springs and take the sharp edge off the blow. The result is that you don't really notice the springs but at the end of the day you are a little less fatigued because the hard bumps have been softened a little. The one down-side of the springs is that they add about 300g of weight to the saddle. If you have some other form of suspension on your bike, like a suspension seat post or rear suspension, then the springs would not have any effect because the other suspension would absorb the blows before they got to the springs. In that case a B.17 might be a better choice.
