Spa Cycle's Aire Leather Saddle is part of Spa's range of own-brand leather saddles that's been making waves recently at a fraction of the price of a Brooks equivalent.
That's not to say that the Spa offerings are just cheap clones; go back a few decades and you'd find other saddlers making saddles to the same basic template, it just happened that Brooks was the last man standing as the world moved on to vinyl, plastic and various flavours of artificial leather.
There's been a bit of a resurgence in interest in more traditional cycling products, and in particular leather saddles. Some would argue that they never stopped being popular, but nonetheless, there does seem to be an ever increasing amount of choice.
A leather saddlebag is a classic cycling accessory that my grandad would have found familiar. That said, it's hard to avoid the phrase 'Gucci manbag' when trying to describe this offering from Spa Cycles.
Spa Cycles' Allen Key to Nut Conversion bolt may not sound exciting but if you want to boost the braking performance on an old bike believe me it is. That's because this is the simplest means of bestowing the benefits of modern dual pivot braking (without resorting to drilling or similarly permanent surgery) to older framesets. Shaving a few grams over OEM types, it's perfect for classic TT mounts, old road bikes and you'll only need one for a road fixers running a single.
