Recently, I had a chance to try the Bikeroo Men’s Saddle.
The old saddle on my bike was worn-out and weather-washed, and I was in the market for something new. My requirements included that it be inexpensive, comfortable, and durable enough for the all-weather commute riding I commonly do. I’m happy to report the Bikeroo Men’s Bike Saddle hit the nail on the head!
Here’s a complete breakdown of my experience with this unique saddle.
The Bikeroo Bike Saddle Offers Unparalleled Comfort
First things first – let’s talk comfort. I use my bike mainly to commute, and I need something that’s up for long rides in what are often wet and cold conditions. The Bikeroo Bike Saddle came through like a champion.
Fashioned from high-density cushion designed to absorb shock and form to your sit bones, this seat also features an ergonomic center cut-out and hollow core that reduces pressure during long rides.
Thanks to its slim design, the seat also isn’t bulky or chunky, so it fits perfectly on my road bike hybrid.
Installing the Bikeroo Bike Saddle
When I first got the Bikeroo Men’s Saddle, I was pretty excited to put it on. Lucky for me, the whole process only took a few minutes. The seat arrives in a compact little package, with all hardware and tools included. Here’s a simple breakdown for how to put it on:
1. Remove the Existing Seat
Before you add the Bikeroo seat, you’ll have to take off your bike’s old saddle. This prepares you for the exciting next step – adding your Bikeroo seat to your bicycle!
2. Install the Bikeroo Saddle
The next steps depend on the seat post of your bike and whether it’s a tubular post or a bent top post. Here are installation instructions for each:
- Tubular Posts. If your bike has a tubular post, you’ll need to mount the bike saddle and its adaptor directly onto the post. From there, you can rotate the angle by rotating the adaptor. Once you’ve found the “Sweet spot,” lock it in by hand-tightening the lateral nuts on the saddle.
- Bent-Top Seat Posts. If you have a bent-top seat post, you’ll want to remove the adaptor from your Bikeroo saddle. From there, you’ll just mount the new saddle onto the seat post rails, adjust the angle for maximum comfort, and hand-tighten the screws to lock it in.
While the process of mounting the Bikeroo saddle is pretty simple, the company is all about customer service, and they’ve been kind enough to share a helpful video of the process, for anyone having trouble with it.
Here it is:
The Bikeroo Saddle is Highly Adaptive
There are few things I hate more than those huge cruiser seats that look like a giant loaf of bread. I’m all about streamlined functionality in my bike seats, and I like models that are low-profile. One of the things I like most about the Bikeroo seat is that it hits that mark.
Unlike many saddles currently on the market, this thing would look good on virtually any type of bike, from mountain bike models to hybrids and cruiser bikes. It’s sporty enough to take you through your first mountain bike competition and low-profile enough to make riding to work without wrinkling your pants easy as pie.
While I’ve only had the seat for a few weeks, it also seems incredibly durable (it even comes with a waterproof cover, which you can see in the image above!) This makes me look forward to using it in the elements.
Get the Available Cover
While the Bikeroo seat looked comfortable enough, I opted to get the Bikeroo gel cover for it. A simple slip-on sleeve, this cover adds a soft gel cushion to the Bikeroo saddle and absorbs shock from the road, rocks, and cracks. It comes in three different colors (I got black) and is super easy to apply.
Simply stretch it over your new bike seat, hop on, and go for a ride. It’s that simple! If it happens to be slightly too large for your seat, just pull the cord at the back to tighten it. The cover’s anti-slip block keeps it securely in place and ensures you won’t have to worry about re-adjusting the cover when you should be riding.
The Bikeroo Men’s Saddle: The Perfect Investment for Any Bike Enthuasist
Today, good bike saddles are hard to find. Anyone who has ever been on a bike knows that saddles aren’t one-size-fits-all and that it can be nearly impossible to find one that suits your body and needs. Trust me – I’ve been through my fair share of bike saddles.
This Bikeroo Men’s Saddle changes the game, though. Low-profile, ergonomic, sturdy, and designed to hold up to much more than just pleasure riding, this comfortable saddle is the answer to any biker’s prayers.
In addition to looking great, this seat is incredibly easy to install, and it costs less than $30! If you ride in rough and rocky conditions or just want a bit more padding for your sit bones, it’s easy to add the soft, cushiony gel cover for another $15.
One of the most attractive packages currently on the bike accessory market, these Bikeroo products have truly wowed me with their durability, convenience, and affordability.
If you’re looking for an upgrade to your bike, I highly recommend grabbing this saddle and cover. With more than 365 4.5 star reviews online, you can bet the public doesn’t lie on this one!
If you’re not totally in love with your Bikeroo saddle, the company promises a money-back guarantee. While they stand by their products 100%, they’ll work with any unhappy customer to find a solution to the issue, or to provide a full refund of the purchase price.
One of the simplest ways to take your daily commute from uncomfortable to dreamy, this Bikeroo saddle is the favorite bike accessory I currently own, and I have no doubt it’ll be the same for you.
