Comfort on the bike

Recommended Posts

Just fitted a Selle SMP Medium saddle.

Just like an armchair.

Perfect for an old “bum”

It’s difficult to know which one of the 39 types to choose.

Mine is a Sella Italia Lady, not sure about the bum, but has a "love groove" cu out. Extremely comfortable. Recommended by the women's road specialist at Evans.

I have a both the Stratos and Evolution on my bikes. The profile means you sit 'in' the saddle unlike flatter topped saddles which I describe as sitting 'on'.

For those who remember the San Marco Concor, the profile  is similar.

Guidance on positioning the saddle can be found on the Selle SMP website. i.e Nose up or down,  which I found took time to get right. A seat post with an infinite adjustable saddle rail clamp is essential for fine tuning the angle.
