J.B. Brooks took out the first patent for leather saddles in 1882, and the company that bears his name has been making them ever since. Brooks saddles have become iconic, known for their good looks, comfort and durability.
This two part video relates a little more about the history of the company and shows the process of making each saddle by hand, as has been done for over one hundred years. The Bike Touring News store carries Brooks saddles and always strives to have most models in stock or readily available. ( Alan at EcoVelo just posted this photo essay on Brooks saddles)
