Brooks England From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Brooks

Brooks England is a bicycle saddle manufacturer located in Smethwick,
Birmingham, England. The company is well-known for manufacturing traditional
leather bicycle saddles. It has been in operation since 1866, when it was
founded in Hockley, Birmingham.
The B-17 is perhaps its most common and most popular saddle. B-66 is its most
popular sprung saddle, but because of the needs for a special clamp (because the
saddle has two rails), the single rail B-67 was developed. Other recent
developments include using titanium instead of steel, for those to whom weight
In 2000, Brooks' parent company, Sturmey Archer collapsed, jeopardising the
existence of the manufacturer, but Selle Royal of Italy bought the company in
2003 with efforts to revitalise the brand.
