When I was deciding on how to outfit Dee-Lilah, my new Mercian Vincitore Special, I thought about everything.
I was going to use a brown Brooks Team Pro saddle I have on hand. But then I saw the same saddle in Maroon (sort of like a pair of cordovan/oxblood loafers I had) on Craigslist. Brooks made a limited edition in that color a few years ago, so I knew I wasn't likely to see it again.
I figured that since Dee-Lilah is going to be unique, she should have a saddle in a color I chose just for her!
