Get the Saddle right for comfort – Go By Bike Episode 41

Bike not comfortable? Here’s one big reason.

Most bikes that are sold these days come with saddles that are really not all that comfortable. They might be fine for casual riding, but for riding regularly, a comfortable saddle can make a huge difference!

I recently ditched my so-so saddle for a new one that looks very promising. But besides just the saddle itself, getting it adjusted correctly is KEY for a good fit! A poorly adjusted saddle can lead to neck and back, terribly sore butts and less riding.

In this video, I show how to adjust your saddle yourself and talk about what to look for. I also show my new Selle Royal saddle which comes with an actual comfort guarantee (don’t like it in 120 days? bring it back!)

Ride on!
