I may be getting the wrong end of the wrong stick here but for what it's worth I believe the person in question dosen't really press their luck too far and most of the stuff which might be described as Off Topic can arguably be described as KOF anyway?and is usually included in a whole raft of predominately On Topic goods for auction.

In addition the person I am thinking of (but could be mistaken) is a long established member of this list, has a in depth knowledge of classic bikes and bits?and continues to be a great asset to us all...

Hello CR,

I hope this counts as "on topic" as I figured there has to be a higher concentration of Brooks saddle users here than anywhere else possibly on Earth.

I am looking to replace the white San Marco Regal on my daily commuter and city transporter with a nice black Brooks. Why? Because it is not a great saddle for riding in blue jeans and dress slacks and the such and I'm tired of cleaning the darn thing. I am in a toss up between the B17 Special or the Team Professional. I know everyone fits saddles differently, so I am asking in your "general" experience which would be better suited on a steel lugged road frame with drops for comfortable city riding in casual clothes. I am about 5'10 and 160 so I'm pretty skinny and can ride comfortably on narrow saddles. The B17 on Harris is described to be suitable for bars that are at or above seat height and mine are slightly below, which has me leaning towards the Pro. On the other hand, seems that plenty of folks use the B17 on their road bikes. Whaddya think??

Dmitry: The only reason you're beating a dead horse is that it's frozen in place up there in the cold north and you don't know it's dead yet. The original Q was on a straight thread hub could a lockring be put on and could one use a fixed cog on such a hub. No one wanted to put a lockring on the same thread size as the cog on a track hub. A track hub by definition is one thread size for cog, and a sm aller thread diameter in LH for the lockring. Whether it's single or double sided is not important. Some hubs were made with both straight thread for freewheel or cluster and the other side for a fixed. Many people want to put a fixed cog on their straight sided threaded hub and if it's tightened tight enuf it will usually stay tite and not roll off, but I wouldn't take that chance, and never ride it on the track. Using brakes on a fixed road use is smart in today's traffic. We used to ride fixed in traffic years ago and had no brakes, but traffic was much less and we knew how to glove our wheel and stop very qiuckly with a little back pedaling. Many times there is enuff thread left on a straight hub if the cog thread section isn't too wide to sneak a BB lockring on. and save the expense of a new wheel. Not really to race but fixed gear training and riding around is fine. Lots of guys used to strip down their road bikes and put the fixed on that way and then several months later convert back.
