s your bike seat uncomfortable? Comfort is a common issue, especially among new cyclists, and one option is to get a new saddle that’s better suited to you. This article gives you the basics on how to make a smart saddle purchase.
Saddles are adjustable via the seat clamp right under the saddle. Loosen the screw and the saddle will tilt forward and back. Even a slight change in the tilt of the saddle can relieve pressure. If your saddle is flat and you experience discomfort, try a slight forward tilt.
If you sit upright while pedaling a cruiser, urban or commuter bike and prefer short rides, try a cushioning saddle. Wide with plush padding and/or springs, it sports a short nose and provides plenty of comfort. You can also opt for a seatpost with springs, which will further cushion your ride.
