I love the looks (and feel) of this collaboration:
“Brooks England and Levi’s® Commuter™ have teamed up to create a Numbered Limited Edition Cambium C17 Denim Saddle. This release of 1,000 pieces will be exclusively available at the flagship B1866 store in London and the Brooks online shop from the 5th of February, 2015.
This special saddle is manufactured from recycled Levi’s denim utilising the same vulcanisation techniques of the comfortable, waterproof, and long-lasting Cambium C17 original. The used denim was collected at Levi’s Commuter Workspaces in Brooklyn, Los Angeles and London in summer 2014.”
Head over to Brooks England for more information.
This build took a bit for me to warm up to it, but there’s something about it that would heat up even the coldest base miles. The bar tape, saddle, fork, headset and hubs are all a different tone of green and yet it works.

Brooks England is throwing a party at their B1866 store in London and will be auctioning off one of these limited edition Movember saddles. Head on over to the Brooks blog to find out more information!
Here’s the official video from 2014 L’Eroica Britannia, showcasing the people and places that could be found along this scenic route.
Brooks England‘s tradition of making cycling bags dates back as long as their saddles, over 120 years. In the past few years, they’ve been making a huge push for their bags, totally five lines: Heritage, Transit, Utility, Expedition and Cult.
This year, they are bringing more colors to their Utility line. Check out more below.
This past weekend, some buddies and I went on a little camping trip. Some of us had to be back in town the following day, while others went on through Monday. The lucky bastards… One of the early returnees, along with me, was Jonathan. It was his first camping trip here in Austin, since recently relocating from Omaha, so we wanted it to be a good one.
There’s more to come on the ride itself (oh and it was a good one), but I thought I’d take a minute to feature his rather unique Surly Disc Trucker…
All-City’s entire lineup is incredibly versatile and the Space Horse is a prime example. The frame’s paint is so classy that just about any component group or build kit will look great on it, especially silver parts. Jolene’s All-City Space Horse is one of my favorite to date. Little details like the blue nipples, Brooks Cambium, PDW Bird Cage, Balloon tires and the interesting 1x for commuting simplicity really make this production frame unique.
If she ever wants to do a tour, she’ll add rings, a shifter and appropriate cables but for now, this bike pedals her to work at Brew & Brew each day just fine…
When some design companies sell cycling products, they just slap a label on some Taiwanese blanks, but House Industries isn’t just anyone. They’ve done an amazing job, sourcing products that were made domestically. From PAUL, to Brooks, Tanner Goods, King Cage and even Waterford-constructed framesets, the House Industries Velo Collection is filled with products that will last a lifetime.
… and as I just found, it’s hard to not add a lot of it to your check out basket!
See more at House Industries and again, smashing job guys!
The John Boultbee label within the Brooks England product line offers unique color combinations to classic models. Both apparel and accessories, like this special edition Carrera folding helmet. This helmet is available in a plethora of colors, but let’s be honest, black on black looks sick.

This chair from Two Makers is good. So good that you’ll have to head over to the Brooks England Blog to read more about it!
