Tip: Take good care of your bicycle saddles

Bicycle Saddle

High quality bicycle saddles are definitely not cheap. That's why it's imperative that you give your bicycle saddle the royal treatment. After a day's riding, make sure you gently wipe down the saddle to remove all traces of moisture which could age and dry out the saddle.

To really increase the lifespan of your saddle, cycle with a bicycle saddle pad which will prevent the saddle from picking up sweat or grime.

"What is The Best Bicycle Seat for Me?"

[ back to main manu ]

Buying a bike saddle is like buying new shoes. They feel different to everyone due to the variety of body shapes. You can tell if your saddle fits properly by checking directly after you dismount. If there are two indentions from your sit bones in the middle of each side of the seat pad.

If you have wider hips, simply choose a wider seat, otherwise, you will pinch the tender skin on the inside of your sit bones. There are also men's and women's bicycle saddles out there for you to consider. Seats for women are often shorter and wider to fit wider hips.

With this information in hand, you should be able to go out and pick the best bicycle saddle that fits you perfectly! Adjust the seat so you are sitting directly with your sit bones on the seat bone pads so that nothing is pinching or chafing.

Nothing makes a cyclist happier than the ability to sit down on a chair after a long ride without experiencing biking pain. A good saddle that is properly adjusted will do just this!

Adjusting the Saddle
