Uncomfortable Bicycle Seat? Try This Cheap & Easy Fix...

Hi my favorite readers! Have you recently bought a bicycle, either stationery or otherwise, that has an uncomfortable seat? Well, one of my readers recently had a problem that brought back memories.

See, the bicycle I had was a great bike other than the seat causing my butt to become uncomfortable. Sometimes, it wasn’t just uncomfortable – it was downright painful. And, there were times when it would become numb. I don’t like a numb butt…

After trying different seats, I had exhausted my options – or so I thought. Then, one evening I was watching the Red Green Show. To anyone who is not familiar with this creative genius (strong laugh goes here), his answer to everything is duct tape.

So, I had a bag of bubble wrap from my moving days. I wondered if that could be put to use in my bicycle seat dilemma. Hence, starts the experiment.

I wrapped the bubble wrap around the seat, adjusted it to the width that I was comfortable with, and secured it with duct tape. VIOLA!! (To make it extra secure, place a strip of duct tape on the beginning piece that’s attached to your bike. That will keep the sliding back and forth to a minimum once you start pedaling). Then, start the wrapping process.

The seat was now comfortable, worked just fine, and made for a good conversation piece. (It is not that pretty of a sight). It works, that is all that matters.

So, for anyone concerned about using their exercise bike while recuperating from a total knee replacement (that wording is for the search engines…:) ) – or anyone else, for that matter – try the bubble wrap & duct tape method.

Good luck! Have duct tape, will travel.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!

    Making the bike seat more comfortable is a good suggestion.

    I don’t have a bike but have been looking at the mini exercise bikes to use after surgery.

    I have a few questions —

    How soon after surgery did you use the bike?

    How often and for what period of time are you biking?

    Thanks!

  • Great idea! I too, had a very uncomfortable seat and covered it with foam padding and topped it with a towel which I secured with a pin. It really helped too.

    Monique, one of the things that work well to get good range of motion to rock in a rocking chair moving your foot farther back as you rock. This is esential for me prior to going on the excersice bike. It warms the knee causing it to move easier.

    Hi Monique & Charleen..
    Monique – I was riding an exercise bike 3 weeks after surgery. It was one of the first machines I used in PT.
    Now, I ride my bike every day for at least 30 minutes. I adjust the tension from low to higher as I progress throughout my workout.

    Charleen….
    Thanks for the suggestion of using a rocking chair. I totally forgot about that! Kudos!

    Thank you, I have been searching for information about this subject for ages and yours is the greatest I’ve came upon so far. I will try this and see how it works for me. What i do not understood is how you’re not more neatly-appreciated than you might be now. You are very intelligent.
