It all started one fine spring day: perfect weather for a bike ride. Since it was the beginning of a new season, I decided to bring my ten-speed into the local cycle shop for a checkup. Upon returning a few hours later, my bike was declared to be in good “health.”
All systems go, as they say.
“But what about the ripped up seat?,” I said to the store owner. “It makes my bike look like a has-been. Why don‘t I replace my seat with one of those inexpensive seats?” I suggested, pointing to a seat I had just seen the owner sell to a customer. “Why would you want to do that!?!” he exclaimed, horrified. “That’s a hard, plastic seat. Yours is a good, soft one that you’ve already broken in. Why not just cover it with a bicycle seat cover?”
“Huh . . . cover it with a what?” I decided to look into it.
After trying various seat covers purchased online that were either too ill-fitting, too likely to slip off, or just too boring, I decided to try my hand at making a better product. Using my background as a designer, I experimented with materials and patterns, and came up with something that fits the bill—and the seat—all the while looking sleek and attractive.
And thus BlaZing SaddleZ was born.
So whether or not you have a seat in need of repair, or just want to spice up your ride, why not try one on for size? You'll be the talk of the bike trail.
