Glad you have located one, Julio - I had a Brooks saddle a few years ago, and the correct spanner certainly made adjusting the leather tension much easier.

I have a tin of the Brooks recommended leather treatment wax stuff - boot manufactures, makers of leather goods etc always seem to recommend specific treatments for the own products, and I wonder how much difference there actually is between all these leather treatment / preservative creams and waxes.  But if you want it, pm me.  I no longer need it.

Hi Lewis,

It is right, this key in steel seem very strong and enought heavy to resist and to make a tension properly.

As well, i think the nut dimension is specific at brooks and the space is very short for use with a another model of spanner..

Do you means, you have a cream pot like this in stock !?

Just going to garage to make sure . . . I had a big clear out a few weeks ago . . . Yes, I still have a tin of Brooks Proofide as in photo. In my 'may need it one day' box.

But I no longer have a leather saddle, and am keen to get rid of stuff I have no use for. I would be happy to send it to you.

You wouldn't happen to have a spare Rohloff hub or Thorn frame collecting dust in your garage, would you? I would be happy to pay the postage. :)

Seriously though, thanks for your thoughtfulness and generosity to a fellow forum member. It's a big part of what makes this forum so great.

I just got home after two months and half for a business trip and a hiking trip inside our great Ecrins national park in the Alps mountains (where i almost let my life ! )

I'm touched when i see two letters from uk really realized properly. I've received the Brooks cream pot and the spanner fits perfectly !


A big thank you  to Lewis and Julian
