The saddle is the most important part of the bike!

We cary seats by Brooks, Serfas.

We want you to ride! That is why we have our Comfort Guaranteed Seat Policy.

If the Serfas seat you buy isn't comfortable, then you can exchange it for another model. Damaged seats will not be exchanged.

The policy does not apply to Brooks saddles. Buying a Brooks saddle is a different expereince and is a leap of faith that it will be comfortable in the long run. Somewhat like a quality pair of leather shoes. If you buy a Brooks, you won't be sorry!

We prefer Obenauf's LP over Brooks Proofhide. Every Brooks we sell, we pre-treat with Obenauf's LP Oil. This one time treatment, softens the leather and shortens the break-in period. Leather is skin and needs you to give it the moisture the cow once did! Obenauf's comes in 1 ounce tubs and we offer refills.

Brooks Saddle Repair and Reconditioning.
Very old and dry leather saddles can sometimes be reconditioned. Treatment and/or reforming can take up to 3 weeks.
We also offer rail and rivet replacement. See the pictures below for example of repaird saddles.
