Our friends at JRA Bike Shop asked us to share this information with Seattle area bicyclists.
A man and a woman, working together, have been approaching local bike shops and trying to sell Brooks saddles at a steep discount. Shop owners believe these are stolen saddles and have turned them away.
According to JRA’s Pioneer Square shop manager Ben Rainbow, the couple has approached Elliott Bay and Bicycle Pull-Apart shops as well as JRA. They have also been seen trying to hawk the saddles outside to customers coming and going from the shops. If you spot this couple or are approached by them near a bike shop, Ben suggests that you report them to the bike shop.
