Q: Help - my butt hurts! How do I ride comfortably on a bike?
A: Again the question we ask back is what type of riding are you doing? All types of riding all have different saddle selection criteria based upon the riders position on the bike. Cushier is not always best. A rider needs to be sitting on thier sit bones not soft tissue. Saddle selection is extremely personal and requires trial and error for fitting. One size does not fit all. Therefore at Pedal Chic we have a saddle demo program so a rider can test and find for their particular … needs.
Q: What is this noise I’m hearing on my bike?
A: Bikes like any machine with moving parts, needs occaisional adjustment and maintenance.
