    Locking a Brooks saddle on a commuter bike?

    Sorry if this has been covered already... I couldn't find exactly what I was thinking of... Maybe a small cable that locks the seat to the frame, but still can't be cut easily?

    Doesn't exist, unfortunately. You're better off getting a 1/8x1/2 chain, slipping a cut road tube around it, and pinning it together. Much harder to cut, pain in the ass to remove.

    A cleaner solution is a tamper-resistant bolt, if you can get one for your seat clamp...search for "[your bolt diameter] tamper resistant hex". The clamp bolts can be many different sizes, but M4, M5, and M6 are by far the most common.

    Lock it up by taking it with you when you lock the bike up. No way I'd trust a Brooks on an unattended bike.

    If I had to risk a brooks regularly, I would definitely chain it the the frame and as said above special bolts or a bb glued in the hex opening. A crappy old gel saddle cover wouldn't be a bad idea either.

    Run an old bike chain through an old road tube through the frame and the seat rails.
    Tequila tonight, tomorrow we ride!
