Brooks Cambium C13 saddle review

Pete Muir Monday, June 24, 2019 - 09:41 Comfortable saddle that blends classic styling with a modern approach 4.0 / 5 £172 Saddle maker Brooks is as British as fish and chips, wet weekends and Brexit. Except it isn’t. The company that began life in Birmingham in 1866 is now owned by Italian saddle behemoth Selle Royal, and this Brooks Cambium saddle is manufactured in Italy. Not that this is a problem. We should be thankful that one of the stalwarts of the British bike industry was saved from extinction in 2002 and still produces some of the most refined and desirable leather saddles in the world – even if they are not actually made in Britain. Leather isn't for everyone, however – especially in these days of rising veganism – which is why in 2013 Brooks developed its first Cambium saddle, made from vulcanised rubber with an organic cotton ...

Dennis surprises himself with second overall at Tour de Suisse

Rohan Dennis (Bahrain-Merida) on stage 7 of the 2019 Tour of California

Rohan Dennis ( Bahrain-Merida ) surprised himself with a second place overall, behind winner Egan Bernal (Team Ineos), at the Tour de Suisse that ended on Sunday in Goms. Dennis said that standing on the overall podium and winning the opening time trial gives him confidence ahead of the Tour de France that starts on July 5. "It's been a good Tour de Suisse," Dennis said. "I really didn't expect to come here and get second overall and a stage win. With the queen stage today getting second on the stage after going off the front with Bernal was more than I ever thought I'd be able to do. But honestly a lot of work was done behind the scenes. "As you saw just even today, when the team rode with Ineos it looked like we were working with them but we had our little plan to try to take ...
