Hard Ass Bicycle Seats

Beginner cyclists often prefer a soft oversized bicycle saddle. On the other hand, more experienced cyclists find that on longer rides a harder saddle is more efficient as it allows more power transmission to the pedals. It actually becomes more comfortable. Tom Lynch from Western Statue & Ornaments has created the "Hard Ass Saddle". The Hard Ass saddle is made from the finest concrete, and offers a rugged, spartan alternative that can help restore the hardy pioneer spirit that made this great nation. Thanks to its titanium rails it weighs only 1849 gms. The saddle has a weight limit - it should not used by riders weighing less than 200 lbs. The saddle costs a mere $399.99. If you are interested talk to Tom, he can usually be found in lane 3.
