I've been looking for a white Brooks for a white (Faema scheme) Merckx (wit h fenders!) I'm putting together for my commuter bike, but the only thing I ever found was the megga-buck Stussy that I wouldn't want to use on a be ater if I could afford it. Then, a few weeks ago, I came accross an Asia n-made copy that looks a lot like the Velo Orange saddle. I bought a wh ite one ebay for around $75 and it shipped from China. Looks ok- certain ly not a Swallow, but still good enough for this bike. He's currently go t brown, white, and pink listed on auction number 390027679915.

I haven't heard any comment on this, but in the latest issue of Cog Magazin e after a visit to the Brooks Factory Eric Von Munz writes that Brooks has new colors, including Deep Purple, Orange, Yellow and Electric Blue on the horizon. Some are pictured in the article. The yellow is pretty interesting to my eye. I just visited both the Wallbike and Brooks sites , however, and saw no mention of them. Has anyone heard of a time line for their release?
