This is my first Brooks saddle.I have long read about break in periods with brooks saddles and the initial pain in the a**e. This saddle has been the most comfortable saddle I have ever owned from the very first ride, I am 300 km into my Brooks Select and it gets better every ride.The saddle smooths out those sharp bumps that would rattle your fillings.It makes me want to ride more.
As far as looks, well its a Brooks. The Brooks Select really stands out even amongst other Bi7's. I had a lot of compliments from some of the roadies working the bike parking corral at a resent Jazz Festival, a nice little vanity moment. Splurge a little You will not be disappointed.

This is the perfect saddle for your retro. Its not as 'hard'as I some other reviews online have suggested, please note that the colour is lighter than the picture suggests. I also have the honey brown bar tape and it is a perfect match colour wise, they compliment each other and the combo is highly recommended. The natural leather grain on this saddle makes it stand out even among Brooks finest
