the Swallow details have been announced.

According to both Sheldon Brown & Wallbike, The Swallow will be available in January in a limited edition, with 500 worldwide and 100 in the US, Handmade for the low, low proce of $399.00.

This will be followed up by a machine made version...no pricing announced, but Brooks has a new US distributor and pricing on all Brooks is expected to rise dramatically.

Damn, that better be comfortable for $399.00.

being a luxury saddle, it will appeal to folks wanting to spend lots of cash on their bikes. maybe it's the perfect compliment for that otrott or seven.
maybe it's the image uplift brooks needed. sadly...
Ti rails, too. at $399, i'll take a dozen. nmJS Haiku Shop

take old tech, make it heavier than a compatible composite saddle and charge 4x what a comparable saddle costs. i'll pass. sounds like they took a cue from the rivendell school of business.
