Hotel exercise bike seats are the modern version of the rack. At least for cyclists. Why?
1. The damn things are rock hard.
2. The damn things are so wide that they will bruise at least one thigh if you ride for a decent period of time.
3. The longer you sit on the damn things, the more pain you suffer.
And I don't get why they suck so much. Can't they put spring seats on them? Or seats that remotely resemble real saddles? Sigh.
Bottom line: Suffered for an hour, focused on cadence more than anything else Very helpful, and better than sitting on a soft couch not getting stronger. I guess . . .
