Local louisville shop, Parkside Bikes, is killing it with their Brooks selection these days! Sure, you can still special order Brooks items from most of the local shops, and Clarksville Schwinn has a good amount of saddles in stock, even some of the old out of production stuff… but Parkside has got it going on! They’ve even got a dog!

BIKE HANGER BY WOODSTICK
Woodstick Ltd. introduces a handcrafted bike hanger that doubles as a work of art, featuring a multi-faceted design crafted from high quality oak. Available in cold black, light graphite, brown and natural color options, each style features an enhanced natural wood grain. Even better, the hanger can be installed on a variety of wall surfaces through a user-friendly mount system, utilizing just three standard screws. In the words of the guys from Woodstick, “The product has its own special character from all viewing angles that makes this product simply special.”

Brooks White Swallow, I could dig this on the Masi as well…. limited to 500. Would be a fun and rewarding hunt if I can’t find the White Team Pro I’m looking for.

My Masi single speed has a terribly uncomfortable white Brev M saddle on it with a covering that, while neat, resembles the dimples on a golf ball. It is the aspect of the bicycle that keeps me from riding it regularly. It just hurts, period. And it’s never going to soften up, I might as well have a vintage plastic BMX seat on that thing. I’ve been looking at different saddles tonight and I checked out a few at my local shop this afternoon but nothing is really getting my attention style wise or shape wise other than a few Fizik saddles that I don’t like the color of. Then I saw this…. THEN I realized it was a limited run. Good thing about my bike shop is that they tend to buy tons of stuff and it sits around in boxes in the basement or behind something on the sales floor until someone notices it 5 years later…. this is how I came to own a mint 1980’s Specialized Expedition. ;) Brooks White Team Pro CMWC TokyoIf they have one, I’ll be stoked. If not I’m open to suggestions. Rails must be chromed, seat must be white, gold, black or a combo of the three. The more narrow the better. No weird cut outs. Flat is good. This is perfect because the bike is white, little bit of chrome accents and the rivets on the seat will match the goldish accents.

Brooks Team Pro Alpe d’Huez saddle. There is still one at the local shop here although Brooks is sold out of them. The warnings by the manufacturer to not get it wet keep me from it..  I love the design though. For some reason it reminds of Joy Divisions Unknown Pleasures LP cover of the bursts from the first known Pulsar.
