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. Here is a quick and easy fix.
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 innovative character, 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.
