Strida Leather saddle vs Brooks B67-S on Strida

Postby taka on Sun Oct 03, 2021 7:07 pm

A quick question: I'm deciding weather to get the Strida Leather saddle or to mount Brooks B67-S on my Strida LT. Is Brooks B67-S be compatible? Is the mounting process be easy without any modifs? Pls let me know your thoughts and findings.

Hello taka,

welcome at Stridaforum :D

It seems that the Brook B67 would fit (it's mentioned several times across our forum).
Just I'm not sure whether B67 and B67-S are different or not.

However, crucial is the vertical distance between the lower edge of the saddle nose and the rails as shown below, the two saddles on top of the original will not fit:

Thanks for your reply.
I found out about the differences between B67 and B67-S (S for short)

B67: For Men. L 260 x W 205 x H 73 mm, Weight: 850 g

B67-S For Women with shorter nose. L 240 x W 205 x H 85 mm, Weight: 810 g

Strida Leather Saddle: L265 x W 200 x H 75 mm, Weight: 1,100 g

I guess the B67 and B67-S would fit ;)

Good pictures at the Brooks pages btw, according to them I'd also say both saddles should fit.
