I love leather bicycle saddles

I would like to say after riding a few months on 2 different brands of leather saddles, I am hooked. To me they are the perfect saddle to hop on and just start mashing the pedals, ideal for commuting,touring,long hauls and overall quick short rides for fun. Leather saddles are comfy but they do weight a bit more then conventional bicycle saddles so if your bike is on a diet then I do not recommend this type of saddle. I personally own 4 leather saddles a Brooks Professional,Brook B72,Cardiff Cornwall,Lycett L'Avenir(French made) and I am willing to collect more.

  1. Hello, I just noticed you mentioned Lycett, they were actually made in Birmingham UK, the company was started by Edward Lycett, eventually Brooks took over the company. I assume the L'avenir saddles were named after the Tour de l'avenir bike race (Tour Of The Future).
