How to mount your new Bikeroo saddle?

Bicycle saddles are designed for quick removal and replacement. It is important to always feel comfortable when riding your bike, so congratulation on your decision to by a new saddle from Bikeroo.

We have prepared for you a short movie with correct instruction on how to change you old uncomfortable saddle with the new saddle from Bikeroo.

 

 

To start replacing your saddle, all you will need just two tools – a hex wrench and a simple key.

 

SO…

 

Step 1

Remove the old saddle with the seat post from your bike. It is as simple as adjusting the seat height.

 

Step 2

Depending on your seat post this is how mount your saddle.

If your seat post looks like a tube you will easily mount your bike saddle directly on the post. Using only the key tighten the 2 latter nuts until the saddle is fixed and doesn’t move.

If your seat post is a little bent then, you should make a few extra steps.

The first thing you will have to do is to remove the adapter from the new saddle, then:

Unscrew to two screws from your old saddle

Remove your old saddle.

Mount your new saddle directly on to seat post.

Tighten the screws and you are ready to go.

Your first Cycling Class? Here's what you should do

  1. Hidrate. Having a bottle of water with you is mandatory. You will consume alot of calories and most people sweat heavily during the workout, so you need to stay hidrated. We recomend you buy a reusable  sports water bottle that you fill before the workout.It's better for the environment and easier to use.
  2. Choose comfortable and lightweight clothes like yoga pants, shorts and for the upper body you can pick a t-shirt or sleeveless shirt. As for the shoes, we recommend you use running shoes or something very lightweight. During a workout , you may sweat and  we recommend you to wear a sweatband on your hand or a towel around your neck. 
  3. Check that your seat is comfortable. If you experience pain in your but, check that the seat height is well adjusted, but if you still experience pain check out our gel seat covers for narrow seats and for wide seats.
  1. Don't overdo it at the beginning. For the first cycling lessons, we recommend you spend between 30 and 45min . It's important that your progress slowly and don't do a  full 60-75 min training.
  2. Follow your instructor's directions to stand up and down on your bike, even if you lower the intensity, but it is important that you stand up from the bike from time to time
  3. Stretch at the end. After you've done with the training, stretch the leg, arms and back muscles a bit.
  4. EAT something after you finish. After the class is over make sure you eat something that gets your energy levels back up. This is a really important step.
