Customer Review

Reviewed in Singapore πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬ on 19 April 2022
This B17 in black was ordered on Amazon US and delivered within a week across the Pacific. It replaces the racing Fizik Alliante which came with the black edition. It was bought to enhance the comfort for long touring rides across 150km pan-island. The b17 has many followers and some strong detractors. Some lament the hardness whilst others the flange. But it is written to be suited for 60deg riders such as the H6L. So any misfit is purely the mistake of the buyers who ignore simple instructions.
The leather is exemplary. The packaging portends luxury. The weight is amply European much like a BMW is. The ride is no less than continental and indeed reminds one of BMW 7 Series or Merc S class. The built is meant to last years if not decades. Tip for you is to lather the seat with moisturiser below and sides and top before fixing. Do that a few times if possible. Let it dry and enjoy the luxury of Brompton and Brooks. It's a great way to ride.
