If one is going to splurge, I suppose one’s crotch is the place to do it. That hallowed maxim has served me well in my purchase of the Brooks B-17 Flyer Special upon which my bottom will be sitting for probably thirty thousand miles by the time it finally needs replacing (the saddle, that is).  Research in different fora concerning the best bike seat always led to the same place: a Brooks—so that’s what I bought. While the Brooks costs about as much as some bikes, I have yet to regret the expenditure.
