Heated Bike Seat

By | December 29, 2008

One of the things I really love about my Audi is that it has heated seats. While the SF Bay area isn’t the coldest place on the planet, it can still get pretty cold. Well, at least for a couple of weeks out of the year.

The surface area of a seat on a bike is quite a bit smaller than for a car, yet in chillier northern regions of the country, I can imagine that the first minute or so in the saddle on a bike that has been waiting for you in the wintry wonderland could be bracing. That’s why I like the thinking of the person who designed this heated bike seat.

As far as I know, this is not a manufacturer’s equipment option. If you’re thinking of customizing your ride with one of these, I recommend looking for one with a bit of heat-conductive padding. Maybe some wadded up mylar sheets. At least up front on the point.
