Feb 26 15
Riding a bike shouldn’t be a pain in the butt. In this episode, Berkeley-based triathlete, coach and bike fitter Mitchell Reiss takes us to saddle school and discusses how saddle size, shape, cushioning, cutouts, and overall bike fit and riding posture all affect your comfort. Then we geek out with the super-cool Gebiomized saddle pressure sensor at Press Play Performance Lab to figure out why my lady parts hurt so much after long sessions on my tri bike. Follow along with the sensor images at www.pureenergypodcast.com.
