Terms & Conditions

The legal stuff

Saddles are either bought outright or with a 30 day trial. You can return an outright saddle as long as it has not been used and is in the condition it was sent out in- Tags attached and packaged it was sent in. (No cheeky little rides)

Saddle Trial on 30 day approval

  • The trial fee varies per product as this price is related to the retail price

  • Trial saddles can be saddles from our saddle library and may have been used previously and therefore not always brand new saddles however should you have received a trial saddle it can be exchanged for a brand new before the end of the trial period should you be keeping the saddle. We do aim to send brand new saddles when possible and all saddles sent will be fit for purpose and fully sanitised.

  • Please take care of the saddle, as it is the customers – (the holder of the account that the saddle is purchased on) responsibility to make sure that the saddle is kept in good condition throughout the trial period and thereafter, the customer is also responsible that the saddle is kept safe from theft and loss, as if you cannot return then you will be unable to return the saddle for the part refund.

  • It is recommended that the saddles are returned via a tracked postal facility as The Seat Post  cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage in the post when being returned.

30 Day Fee Brackets

The return date that the saddle has reaches The Seat Post will be the date of dispatch which will be 30 days after the postal date. Please note it can take 1-2 working days to dispatch and deliver orders.

  • Dates to which the saddle should be returned may be subject to change if the day falls on a Public Holiday. If the saddle is not returned by that date then or the bit is returned damaged or not fit for purpose you will not be entitled to a refund.

Saddle Pain - "ON YOUR BIKE"

There are so many reasons cyclists experience pain, within the body from a long (or sometimes short ride) it’s a common problem that some riders think is part of the experience, this does not need to be the case. An incorrect saddle can cause back ache, shoulder or neck pain and even aching thighs and/or knees - that's not to mention sore sit bone area or genitalia. All cyclists are unique and some times it is our confirmation rather than anything else that causes the issue,

Don't Mush your Tush on the Turbo !

As the nights draw in and the roads get a little less welcoming, now is the time to roll out the turbo. Firstly you re not designed to sit - for any amount of time, let alone 5 hours plus (long training sessions) with all your pressure on a bone with the pressure force directly onto the area of a two pence piece. If you think about sitting at a desk for any period of time, you will move in the chair, perhaps cross legs, sit on a leg roll back and forth - this needs to be main

The 500 Mile Bike Ride

The biggest cycling challenge of the year! A team of 26 intrepid cyclists, rode alongside me to complete the incredible journey cycling the length of the country over five days, raising vital funds for Racing Welfare to support racing’s workforce. The ride started at Carlisle Racecourse on 17th August and finished at Newton Abbott Racecourse on 21st August, covering around 100 miles a day. Along the way, there was beautiful scenery, great camaraderie, and a glimpse of the Tou

Bike Insurance do I need it ???

I don't know about you, but I try and get away with as little as possible when it comes to all the "add on" until I need it. This blog is for sure not to worry anyone into or out of getting bike specific insurance. I just wanted you all to know that there is so so much out there and too much to consider ! It can feel much easier to insure a number of things in one go, which is why many cyclists still insure their bike on their home or contents insurance policy. However, takin

FREE Online Bike Fit

No this is not ideal - however - nothing is ideal currently. Lets face it. The UK is a bit of a lockdown mess. I have looked at online fitting and its a service that I can offer for free and I do term this a "bikefit" very loosely. Ideally a few side and front images of the bike set up - no rider - riders on and then we look at a few positions. - Still images. Then if you are able some moving shots from the side and front. This is a service that is free of charge with any sad

The Mental Health Cycle

A healthy mind in a healthy body the fact that physical exercise contributes to mental wellbeing has long been acknowledged. In fact with as many as 1 in 4 and its more like 1 in 3 of us having some Mental Health crisis in our lifetime then exercise is even more important. People with poor mental health are more likely to: have a poor diet; smoke or drink too much alcohol; be overweight. People with poor mental health are also more likely to die from heart disease and four ti

Good Mental Health - what does that look like.

Physical activity has a huge potential to enhance our well being. Even a short burst of 10 minutes’ brisk walking increases our mental alertness, energy and positive mood. A hour or 2 on the bike is even more beneficial. So get the wheels turning. "It is an amazing time for reflection, space and wellbeing and getting back to nature- getting the endorphin's pumping!" Participation in regular physical activity can increase our self-esteem and can reduce stress and anxiety. It a
