This service is for those who find everything on the bike fantastic… or it would be if it weren’t for the saddle. It could be pain, numbness, friction, saddle sores or any combination there of that is turning riding your bike into a nightmare.
During this session, we will consider your individual saddle issues and attempt to get to the bottom(!) of what is causing them.
Bring along the saddles you have so we can see what hasn’t worked for you in the past (and why it hasn’t worked). It might be that you have the right saddle, just not have it in the right position/orientation. We will also dip into our extensive saddle library in search of something that works for you.
We are pretty proud of our saddle library. There are currently over 60 saddles on the wall and the range is growing all the time. We stock and sell COBB/JCOB, ISM, Repente, Ninety K and Selle SMP. The library also includes other saddles that have some specific features that sets them apart from the field and addresses specific issues or use cases. There is a good chance that we can find the right saddle for you.
The BB Interface Analysis session includes more than just trying different saddles. If the Saddle Trial Session, described below, is saddle speed dating, the BB Interface Analysis is a more leisurely date, getting to know the saddle. We will spend time assessing and getting to the root cause of what might be driving your saddle discomfort. The aspects that I will focus on will be saddle fore-aft position, height, tilt as well as the saddle itself. We may also discuss clothing choice, and skin treatment.
Where possible, we will using our fit bike to replicate your current position. The fit bike allows quick and easy adjustment of saddle position – something that is harder to do on a real bike. You might be surprised how an adjustment to position can turn the exact same saddle from a nightmare into a dream ride.
It would be remiss of us if we didn’t mention that sometimes saddle discomfort isn’t actually being caused by the saddle. It might be that the front end is too stretched out, or your cranks are too long. There will be cases where a BB Interface Analysis cannot fix your saddle issue. In these instances, if you upgrade to a full bike fit, the price of the BB Interface Analysis will be deducted from the cost of the bike fit. (Offer must be accepted within 3 days of the BB Interface Analysis.)
Winning Position stocks saddles from the ranges of COBB/JCOB, ISM, Repente and Selle SMP.
