In het jaar waarin we de Olympische spelen haar grote terugkeer zien maken naar London, heeft Brooks een limited edition van het B17 Select zadel gemaakt, om de lange relatie met het lange afstandfietsen te vieren. Dit Brooks zadel is exclusief gemaakt van organisch leer van de Smethwick fabriek en is voorzien van, met de hand gehamerde, koperen klinknagels en een gravure op basis van een eerdere illustratie van Frank Petterson in het Brooks Book van 1923, gerestyled door illustrator Richard Phipps. Het zadel is tevens ontworpen ter ere van de eerste editie van een wereld wielerwedstrijd, een 18000 mijl lange rit over de hele wereld, van London naar London.

Est 1866 The Story of John Boultbee Brooks

Over almost a century and a half, Brooks England has grown from a small workshop to a byword in quality craftsmanship. Back in 1865, John Boultbee Brooks left his hometown of Hinckley in Leicestershire with just £20 in his pocket.

He headed for Birmingham, where in 1866 he established a business in horse harnesses and general leather goods in Great Charles Street under the name JB Brooks & Co. In 1878, the unfortunate death of Mr Brooks’ horse led to a stroke of inspiration. Unable to afford another horse, he borrowed a bicycle in order to commute to work. He found the seat so uncomfortable that he vowed to do something about it.

On 28 October 1882, Mr Brooks filed his first saddle patent. Waddling cyclists everywhere rejoiced and the new product was a roaring success.
