I passed this on the sidewalk while walking to work.  It's a bicycle set-up for decorative purposes.  Including a Brooks saddle that is destined never to be used.  My first thought was how sad for that saddle to never see any miles.

It looks cool though....

you didn't seriously expect ralph lauren to use something as pedestrian as a vinyl saddle, did you?

(and that trike has been the subject of much derision in my office. mostly coming from me...)

I wanna fix that sloppy tape job!

I am sadder  seeing the water under the  table indicating  that it  had been  raining. Is that  saddle going to get  destroyed while  it sits there?  Please tell  me there is a canopy.

no, no canopy; the water likely isn't from rain, the patio area is hosed down every morning, weather permitting.

i seriously doubt the saddle has been treated at all, ever.

How dare they do whatever they want with a thing they own.

I suggest stealing it.

See if they'll hire you to pedal the thing around town with samples. Bet you could talk 'em into it & on the way, discretely swap out the saddle... call it a bonus.

It is fulfilling its destiny. Brooks saddles are one of the few pieces of cycling gear that is as much a work of art as a functional and comfortable bicycle component. So "just being eye candy" is what is was made for!
