As a person who has always suffered from mild back problems, cycling was always going to be a challenge. Having one leg just over a centimetre longer than the other means constant adjustments. Especially in the terrain that I normally ride in. Thus, for me, my saddle position is very important indeed. I lend one of my three bikes out quite a bit to clients, as well as friends looking to try out a Bianchi for the first time. Thus when I have them returned, like to adjust them back to exactly the same position. Tape measures and spirit levels come out, but as we all know, there is always a small difference. Therefore I was intrigued to be introduced to the new Saddle Adjust Free App. And I must say I was impressed by it.
What is the Saddle Adjust Free App?
The Saddle Adjust Free App can be downloaded from the Apple store using this link
or from the Play Store on this link
The app is free, and very simple to use. It allows you to save all your favourite saddle positions, as well as take photos of them. It may be that you favour a different saddle position, depending on what sort of riding you are doing. I like to tweak my saddle if, for instance I am doing a four-hour flat ride, as opposed to a couple of hours climbing and descending. The Saddle Adjust Free App allows these adjustments to be easily made, and more importantly for your saddle to be reset to its original position exactly. I can honestly say that customizing you saddle has never been so simple.
How to use the Saddle Adjust Free App
Once the app has been downloaded, the process of configuration is very straightforward. The smartphone is placed on the saddle, and thus can be adjusted to the MILLIMETRE. The app is very minimalist, so even if you are not a “techie”, it is easy to use. Within a couple of minutes, you will be able to discover all its benefits. The app has its own presets depending on what sort of bike you use it on. Also, it allows for the saving of each saddle adjustment that you enter. Thus, you no longer have to worry about lending your bike to anybody. In no more than a minute, your saddle will be back where you want it. EXACTLY where you want it. Give it a try, you won´t be disappointed.
