Saddle Up

It's here! It's Here! IT'S HERE!

My Brooks B68s Classic (black) saddle came in the post today. And it is a beaut.

Upon unwrapping it from the sophisticated packaging I dressed it with LEXOL-Neatsfoot leather dressing- designed for today's vegetable tanned leather, which is how this hide was tanned.

I eagerly retrieved my tools to replace the vinyl saddle with my new prize leather saddle to find that somebody had used them without replacing them, ugh.
So for now I can only admire it on my desk as I fantasize about how nicely it will shape to my body & cool in hot weather.

Review to follow...

  1. I just put it on and it looks great. I took it for a spin around the neighborhood and it feels good. I got a nifty little all-n-one tool, but you'll have to wait till tomorrow to hear more about that. Sweet dreams, MoBsters. xo
