If your putting that on a mtb make sure you've got a rear mudguard or place a poly bag under the seat. Brooks dont do well with constant drenchings to the untreated underside of the leather. They do look good though especially with a Carradice saddlebag :D

Cheers Gazz, but you do know how wrong that sounds, don't you? :shock:

:lol:

And yes velo, mudguards will be in full effect. :wink:

In fact, does anyone over 35 ever ride without mudguards on anything but the dryest of days? :?

Me too, don't like the look at all despite loving the warm dry feeling they provide.

I always do my own mechanics - crochet hook, zip ties and cable cutters usually sort it :)
