Saddle Up with Brooks, originally uploaded by [Zakkaliciousness].

Nothing like the fine, bespoke saddles from Brooks of England. You see them often in Copenhagen. If you're going to ride 1000 km a year like other Danes, your bottom needs bespoke loving.

Brooks has been crafting saddles and gear since 1866 and we hope that they continue.

On another note, it turns out that REELIGHTS are for the people!
We were chuffed to discover that the city is giving away 600 pairs of the award-winning Reelights to citizens. The city of Copenhagen and Frederiksberg has an annual campaign called Brug hovedet nu! - meaning Use your head now - which feebly attempts to encourage people to use their bike lights by scaring the shit out of them. We've posted about it before.
It's the law, of course, but many people forget. With the Danish designed Reelights, you never forget.

We have registered on the website for the free Reelights and we'll get a text message and/or email on the morning when the freebies are given out.
Very, very cool. We're crossing our fingers.

Saw these the other day. Looking forward to trying to get a free pair.
