Little words.

Big meaning.
 well said.

I am super happy to be rocking my little new saddle. It is a honey-colored Brooks B67.
It was 7PM and it must have been around 80° ---- here we are, the one and only Dallas and I at Citizen Chain. He has been a huge fan of the sexy steel blue bike aka Frenchie for years. =)
with Dallas. frenchie gets new saddle

+ok, back to riding all over the city

  1. Nice saddle... that's one of my favorites...

  2. Saddle is wicked cool (as are you)!

  3. That's the same saddle I've got. It's extremely comfortable, although it will start creaking on occasion. A few drops of oil on the springs takes care of that. It looks like you've angled properly also.

  4. I like the "still life in bike basket" composition with the rose and the leather bag.

    Congrats on the new saddle!

  5. Love the purse as much as the bike! I have a 30+ year old Raleigh mixte with basket, rack & trunk bag. I remember when I got my honey colored B67 put on finally. It just completed the picture. Frenchie is lovely.

  6. Sharp eye, catching the bike lane hat!!

  7. Great saddle! It suits the Frenchie perfectly well! My favourite Brooks is the B17...
    If you want to "push" further, you maybe can find a vintage "Ideale" saddle. Ideale was the French Brooks equivalent, but it has disappeared from the market a long time ago.
    Cool Brooks saddle, anyway!

  8. Love your new saddle and all the lovely images! Hope you had a good weekend!
