I’m the proud owner of a new Brooks Swift saddle and I’ve already clamped it onto the Neo Primato. So this bike is becoming more and more of a mongrel and I can hear the sighs and complaints already. I’ve taken a classic Italian steel frame, loaded it with Japanese components and to top it all put an English leather saddle on it. I could argue, that since Brooks was bought by Selle Royal it’s sort of an Italian saddle…..well I could, but I won’t. Bottom line (pun intended), the Swift looks better and, if my experience with B17s is anything to go by, will feel better too.
