Brooks 150th Anniversary

It has been 150 years since John Boultbee Brooks first opened a workshop in Birmingham for horse harness and tackle under the family name. After the death of his horse, he discovered the bicycle and created a seat that would one day grow his workshop to become the world’s largest saddle producer until the 1960’s.

In 2016, Brooks England have planned a long list of activities to celebrate this great achievement. Included is the release of a number of 150th Anniversary Edition products. 

Brooks has created a series of their most iconic saddles resplendent in all copper frames with hand-hammered copper rivets and black leather. The models available are the classic best-selling B17, its touring counterpart the Flyer, the B67 for city bikes, the B33 for heavy duty, and the Swallow for racing, all delivered in Special Edition packaging.
