Ok - I just can't decide on this so let's have some opinions!

viewtopic.php?f=43&t=269918
Barring any v last minute u-turns, Just the saddle (& poss bar tape) to decide on now.

I had a big-riveted Brooks before but it was a bulky thing & was really set this time on a sleek Swallow profile... But...
1) keep getting swung by the big rivets on the Swift.
2) the Spa Aire looks lovely - is a Brooks really any better?
3) bearing in mind the bike is a vivid light blue with single white band on downtube & deep rim shiny wheels , should it be black saddle with white tape, black/black or honey/honey.

I kind of like them all but really need some guidance here!

I love them, but the titanium is way out of my budget! If I go Brooks rather than Spa, my limit will be about £70.
