There are big fans of Brooks and some not so big fans....

Seems to be a love-hate thing.

I've got three of 'em. One is on my Phat, one is on the bastard cruiser from hell, the other is sitting in a box in the closet. When they break in they are IMHO pretty comfy. I think like any seat it's such a subjective thing...but the ones that I have that are broken in feel really nice and offer a bit of shock absorbtion. On of 'em is a honey-colored one and it's really pretty.

Oh, one more thing. It takes 80 years to break one in. Enjoy!

Like I like. Yep.
