Brooks have been firmly established within the world of cycling accessories since 1866 when J.B. Brooks founded the company in Birmingham. Originally producing saddles and reins for horses, Brooks tried out the latest invention, the bicycle, after his horse passed away. He was so struck by how uncomfortable bikes at the time were that he restructured his whole company to produce cycling accessories instead. Brooks believes in quality without compromise for all that they do. Their products are durable, practical, and have a charming vintage appeal.
