Brooks England, the 150-year-old bicycle leather goods maker, celebrates the Olympics — hosted by London for the third time in the modern era — with a tribute to the flag of the United Kingdom. The Union Jack Swallows (above), a limited edition of the classic B15 saddle, will be available in red, white and blue leather. Only 500 pieces will be produced in each color, with red and blue priced at $280, and the white at $350. The saddles will be sold by select Brooks dealers and online beginning in mid- to late-August, according to a Brooks representative. We’re already carrying a torch (couldn’t resist!)  for the limited-edition white.
