NordicTrack s15i seat question

Hello fellow riders -
My wife and I have a NordicTrack s15i and we both have differing seat needs. I wonder if anyone has found a way to easily switch it out? My tailbone is becoming unhappy with my wife's very cushy replacement for the original seat.

It there an easier way than having to unscrew and take the thing off the bracket?

Thanks!

Maybe find a saddle that works for you naked, and then get one of those cushy covers for your wife? If that works, all you'd have to do is remove or replace the cover. [Also: Mods, please move to Indoor Cycling]

Welcome to Bike Forums


My Wahoo Kickr Bike uses an bicycle industry standard, Seat Post.
When my buddy wants to ride it, I don't wish to upset my Saddle position.
So I mark my Seat Post height with masking tape, then pull my Seat Post out completely (my saddle still mounted) and replace the Seat Post with another and his preferred saddle.
Replacing mine when he's done.... 30 seconds.

The photo I saw of your bike did not appear to utilize a bicycle type Seat Post, but maybe the manufacturer can sell you a spare.

I did some research for you.
The part in question appears to be #13 in your manual. <you can click on that to open the manual (page 13 is what you want)

These guys appear to offer parts for your bike.
They even use the same part item #'s

That's as far as the good news goes

Item 13 - Part# 408527 - Saddle Post - $131.26 <<<<< and I've a funny feeling this is JUST the post and NOT the carriage/clamp on top.
Hells bells, mine was $30
