The bike saddle is one of those parts of the bike that can easily be taken for granted. It's easy to forgo upgrading your saddle in favour of sexier upgrades like wheels and pedals.

Saddle position, however, is one of the most crucial elements to ensure you can ride comfortably and efficiently on your bike - no matter what your discipline.

Unwritten Rules of the Tour de France
