Had to have some fun... here's my bike.


My wife just ride for a few miles and i've been pestering her for years to let me get her a decent bike. This is her first new bike since she was a kid.

Went for her first ride, she normally does 3 miles at a park a few blocks from our house. Today she drove to a friends house and rode 5 miles on a MUP.

She loves the bike but not 100% on the seat (saddle). I told her she should try mine.

Somehow I don't think she would like that.

5 miles slow cruising on that seat post protector would make her love the original seat.

Seats seem like a big sticking point to me. I've only sat on one I've liked so far and it's on my bike. I have not felt another that has felt as good yet. Most of them are so small I don't see how they would be comfy at all. I guess for guys who are not sitting down that much it doesn't matter. Or they wear the padded shorts**********?

for long rides the comfortable seats are very firm. They’re just wide enough to support the bones and not wide enough to rub your legs and cheeks.

For cruising, a wide seat is nice but the angle makes a big difference !
