Gear Up: Sittin’ Pretty with Seat Beads
Things are about to get sexy up in here.
Two words: Butt. Beads.
Normally using said two words together might make you chuckle nervously. Maybe even bring on a bit of a cold sweat. But, fear not. These butt beads are harmless. Unless you’re really accident prone, highly flexible or practice a lot. In which case? I probably don’t want to know about it.
The premise of seat beads is to keep some air flowing around your sittin’ muscle. This is supposed to help to keep it cooler and extend your ride by relieving some of the discomfort that can come from a long day in the saddle.
Do they work? Who knows. I’ve read accounts of people loving, hating or being indifferent about them. The only way to know for sure is to give ’em a whirl. A million cabbies can’t be wrong, can they?
