Bicycle Saddlery

Bicycle Saddles Examined and Explained


The search for the perfect bicycle saddle may be a never-ending quest for some people as the mythical combination of ideal weight, perfect width and luxurious comfort is never actually achieved. For others, the perfect saddle is out there but with so many saddle makes and models it is sometimes difficult to sort through them all.

The purpose of Bicycle Saddlery is to attempt to present as many different bicycle saddles as possible in an effort to give the cyclist the widest array of choices possible. There are any number of pages on the Internet devoted to the larger brands such as Fizik, Specialized and Selle Italia and far fewer on the smaller brands such as Ritchey, Origin-8 and Planet Bike.

Not only will the racing saddles be made available but the cruiser and recreational saddles will also be spotlighted and examined.

The reviews and information that have been provided on each of the product pages of this site have been gathered from a range of different sources including personal experience, manufacturer’s sites and the experiences of other riders who have discussed them on cycling forums and their own sites.

Whatever has been deemed important in helping to describe the look and feel of each saddle has been added to the various pages in order to provide a significant level of information about each saddle.

Ultimately, it is going to be your own backside that will determine whether the information has been useful or not.

Good luck and good riding.
