A Summary: 2016 — 2017

0. First, A Word of Appreciation

1. Natural Bias

Implications

Representative view of key bike and skeletal components as seen from the rear, pedals are at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions.
A tilted saddle results in a) curving of the spine and b) an effective leg-length difference.

Handling Asymmetry

2. Imprint Inaccuracies

  1. sitting too far back on the foam,
  2. shifting weight sideways while on the foam, and
  3. getting up from the foam before the imprint is fully captured, i.e. before users stop sinking into the foam.

3. Installation-Related Fit Issues

4. Repair, Return & Replacement Policies

Two-Year Warranties

Excessive Impact Damage

  1. We cannot tell what the impact force encountered actually was, but
  2. we still need some way to determine the maximum impact a saddle can handle in real world usage, and
  3. real world impact forces encountered varies from person to person, and can depend on the individual’s riding style (e.g. aggressive, risk-taking), as well as road conditions along the routes taken.
