Since its introduction a couple of years ago, The Barbican has become a familiar sight on the shoulders of cyclists all over the world. Riders seem to value its understated look, its tough yet pliable materials, its respectable storage capacity and above all, perhaps, its beautiful lines. Building off of past releases, Brooks introduces a new version to the masses for 2011 in its saddle-grade leather Barbican. The new leather Barbican, unlike the “ready broken”-looking original, arrives immaculate with all of the qualities you’d expect from the English company. Look for a release soon through Brooks England retailers.
