Brooks: Limited Edition Swallow Bicycle Saddle


Perhaps the world's most legendary manufacturer of bicycle saddles, Brooks England has been making them by hand since 1866. They recently released a limited run of their Swallow saddles exclusively for the 8th annual Bicycle Film Festival, which hits New York on 28 May 2008.

The Swallow is a racing saddle first patented in 1936. It's normally only available in black, brown and honey (the classic Brooks pallet), but this one comes in British racing green. It goes for $246, and Brooks will donate $100 to the festival for each purchase. Limited to 100, get one while to you can at the Brooks site.
