There's also 4% cashback at the moment if you go through Quidco, bringing the price down a bit more.
I bought one recently too, about 10 weeks ago. Got a Brown B17 from SJS whilst they were still £46. I don't think they realised for a long time that everyone else had put their prices up. I only put it on my bike this weekend as I was waiting for the better weather so it didn't get rained on. I'd had my last one 28 years so I expect this one will see me out!
Blimey even better!
I put mine on only yesterday also, as I only finally got round to putting proofide on it the weekend. It looks great, it's transformed the look of the bike. It's also the first time I've sat on a brooks,
I imagine mine will last some time as I'm not a high mileage rider.
I'd post a pic but it might upset peoples retro sensibilities as its a new build
