    No 'saddle' (aka bike seat) will ever fit you better than this one.

    As you would expect at a top notch bike show leaning toward the high end biker, saddle comfort (a.k.a bike seat) is one of the top priorities. The folks at Landyachtz say that they have the world's only custom moldable saddle, the Reform. How do you know it will be the right fit for your sit bones? Because the seat has a built in heating element which is used to start the customizing process. You bring your bike to a Reform equipped dealer where it is put on a trainer, one of those devices that lets you peddle in place. The Reform saddle is installed on your bike and then heated for 3 to 5 minutes depending on the ambient temperature. Now you, the rider, gets into the hot seat (so to speak) and let your sit bones create a saddle you can totally relax into. You perform your various riding positions for about 15 to 20 minutes. And now you should have the perfectly matched saddle! As you might expect, this is not inexpensive. The saddle I saw the the Interbike show will retail for $350. If you want to perform the fitting on your own, a version with the heater device that plugs into AC will be priced at $400. Available Spring 2019.
