|Get help choosing a bike
seat or exercise bike seat to fit your needs:
determine what your riding goals are.
You will need to figure out whether you are going to be riding on
highways, sidewalks or off-road, exercise class, or in the comfort of
your own home. You should have a mental picture as to how long you
will be riding and then add some. Your experience on your seat
should be comfortable so you come back to it everyday.
Choose the right
Now that you know your riding
goals, it should be easy to determine which bicycle style is right for
you. Road bikes are easily
noticeable by their skinny low-rolling resistance tires and aero looks.
Mountain bikes are the 4x4's of the bicycle industry. The Comfort
bike allows you to sit more upright than a mountain bike and designed
for more casual rider who seeks the rider-friendly bicycle.
Cross/Hybrid is a comfort bike with more road
bike style wheels. Exercise bikes come in many different
styles. Spinner bikes are for very active individuals involved in
classes and are designed to fit all shapes and sizes. A stationary
and an upright bike is an excellent way to start getting into
shape. The best thing about these is one can stay at home and
exercise in front of the TV. Keep in mind that while searching for
a bike, NEVER buy one that is the wrong size.
Pick the correct style
One of the major problems facing
bicyclists is their Derriair... more specifically, what they sit on.
Your seat must fit the type of riding your doing and also your anatomy.
industry calls them "saddles," not "seats." The
reason for this is a "seat" is something you sit
on, and is designed to bear essentially your entire weight. A
saddle is intended to carry some, but not all of your weight. The rest
of your weight is mainly carried by your legs, and some by your hands
and arms. Your local bike shop may have a new device to measure
The faster you ride, the more likely it
is you’ll want a narrow, racing-style seat. Although,
a narrow seat fits right inside the sit bones, it puts pressure on
nerves, blood vessels and soft tissue and many riders suffer numbness
for this reason. As you ride more casually, most of your weight is
planted directly on the seat. A wider heavily padded seat is an
ideal way to support your weight and provide more cushion. Also
another factor to keep in mind is that if you
have a wide pelvis, you'll want a seat with a wide rear sitting area.
As you make your purchases, the company
you buy from should have a minimum 30 day trial period and return
policy. Don’t just head
out and mindlessly pedal along. Take your time, shift your weight
from side to side, stand occasionally. This will relieve the
pressure on your Derriair and get a whole new set of muscles working.
