    Inslulated bicycle seat?

    Remember those styrofoam bead filled seat cushions that folks used for deer hunting and ice fishing and Packer Games?

    I wonder if you couldn't cob something like that together for a bicycle seat to make bicycle riding warmer and more comfortable.

    On cold days, my saddle never seems to warm up. Anybody ever heard of a warm bicycle seat?

    My butt is the last thing I have to worry about keeping warm when riding. Move them legs a bit faster Mike...get some butt friction action going and that saddle will warm right up!

    I can't say I've ever noticed that my butt was cold while riding. Toes and fingers and nose and ears, yes.
    I don't want my saddle getting bigger. I think it would rub if it were any bigger.

    OK, chipcom, I'll try it. If you see a bicyclist with sparks flying from the saddle, it is me.

    Safety first - don't fart! I accept no liability for charred rubber or toasted buns!
