Brooks B17 @ Halfords - Bargain!

Postby chris3vic » 27 Jul 2013, 10:32am

Currently they are selling them online at the offer price of £40. To me it seems like a bargain for a saddle which in all seriousness could outlive any bike you put it on.

Just snapped one up myself for my new Galaxy.

mmmm, I don't really need one, and I can't really afford it, but I suppose I'll never get one so cheap again

Just ordered one despite buying two secondhand of the forum last week, the new one from Halfords was cheaper too. Such is life ...

Just ordered two. Wonder how long they can keep that offer up. Or maybe its a cunning plan to entice cyclists like us into a place we would never normally go.

The optimum number is reputedly n+1 where n is the number currently owned. Need to buy some more bikes to display them on though ;-)

Picked up mine today. They did it for 32 even though I pre ordered for collection at 40. Very happy!!

I asked why price was so low, but the answer was a vague "is that low?"

Person had no knowledge of brooks saddles, which is fair enough, but at around 1/2 rrp there must be a good reason for this markdown

Am going to buy a Brooks saddle next week, so if anyone wants to sell one let me know.

Would prefer Black.
