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.

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

Today I was invited to a women in cycling launch event.

Women In cycling seeks to facilitate a platfo

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

8 of the top 15 riders at Kona 2019 used this saddle

But you don't need to be a pro to get into the right saddle, or get that professionals advantage. The JCOB Delta 38 is the latest saddle design from master designer John Cobb. Based on the very popular Type 5 saddle, the Delta 38 is significantly narrower than any other full spit nose saddle on the market, something triathletes have been asking for since the beginning of split nose saddles. 105mm long seat rails to give a broad range of adjustment, the nose is 55mm wide so th

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


Proxim W650 155 Sport T2.0 "Possibly the most comfortable saddle I have ever ridden in" - 52 year old road bike rider. "Wow - what a game changer - longer more fun rides, at just the change of a saddle." 47 year old MTB rider. "Like a hug from a cuddly teddy" The saddle comfort as described by one male rider ! Feedback from a group of 12 riders who trialled the saddle - 11 of the 12 riders said they are now considering a permanent change to the Proxim - with 6 of the 12 rider

Keeping the bushes trimmed....

Following on from an amazing article last week that said all cyclists should keep their pubic hair to prevent saddle soreness. I just want to add the other side to the argument -to save millions of beauticians from bankruptcy and to also stop us women cyclists getting referred to as 70's European throwbacks (No offence to my German followers) Yes it is correct that shaving, waxing, or plucking pubic hairs increases your risk for an ingrown pubic hair, this can cause a small,

Crossing your legs boys !

Cycling is a great low-impact exercise, which is ideal for many, as there is much less pressure on joints and is much less than running. But can putting in miles in the saddle cause temporary erectile difficulties in males? A Harvard Special Health Report, Erectile Dysfunction: How medication, lifestyle changes, and other therapies can help you conquer this issue, Reported that in certain circumstances, bike riding can damage nerves and compress arteries in the penis, which

Saddle sore's

Saddle sores vary between individuals. However, a general description would be a sore, often raised area of skin in the region that makes regular contact with the saddle. There is the ongoing debate of to have pubic hair or to not ? You can be in on of 2 camps - some say it protects and acts as a barrier- others that this is asking to get an infected follicle, when the hair grows back into the skin (Owch!) Some saddle sores look a lot like spots and these are often caused by

Where to start .....

Saddles come in many shapes and sizes. That's not to mention colours and designs. Saddle width – saddles come in different widths, and you should try and match these to your sit bones. You can measure your sit bones at home: put a piece of tinfoil on the sofa, sit on and lift your feet off the floor so your weight goes through your sit bones. When you stand up, you will see two dimples where your sit bones are. Measure the distance between the centre of the two dimples, and t

Saddles for FEMALE anatomy

The most amazing saddles - these are the front and centre of the bike world and The Seat Post intends on exposing you British riders to the ride of you're lives ! JCob saddles or John Cobb saddles (AKA Mr Windtunnel) the saddles are off the scale. John Cobb has been actively involved in the cycling industry since 1972. He first proved himself as a pioneer in the area of cycling aerodynamics when his positioning and aero knowledge were used with Greg LeMond, thus shocking the

You cant just tuck it away like the boys do !

In 2008, British artist Jamie McCartney plaster cast over 400 women’s genitalia, for his art exhibition - cleverly named The Great Wall Of Vagina (Have a google later -as long as your not at a work computer) I imagine you are very intrigued as to where we are going with this - well chances are that if you are reading this now you most probably have a lady garden, vagina. (insert whichever word you use to refer to said area.) if you are a man reading this please continue it wi

Caring for your bum on the bike.

Like all aspects of any training, be careful how you build-up- take your time and allow your body and that sensitive area to adapt. There’s no doubt that your undercarriage does get used to time in the saddle but you can’t rush it. As you build strength and core (Which you will believe me) you will become "lighter in the saddle putting less pressure onto your saddle This can create more bounce in the saddle, as well as friction. Experienced riders will put more weight and pow
