We’re slowly adapting to a new normal here, what with shifted schedules and all, and I’m finally beginning to ride Basil a little more than I’ve been able to in the past few weeks. At the moment, I’m testing the new Brooks Cambium saddle, and gradually extending the lengths of our rides.
The Cambium is a vegan departure from the famous Brooks saddle, made of linen and rubber — and designed with a very sleek profile. So far, I like it very well, but I’ll need a few more longer rides to determine if this is the way to go.
Basil still looks a little odd to me when he’s got a light saddle. That’s my fault: my little workhorse Brompton is covered in black accessories. If we go for the Cambium, we’ll have to get the darker version.
