The shark saddle suddenly looks comfortable by comparison.

Looks like a good way to wind up with your saddle up your ---.

You might as well save some dollars and go full seatless unicycle.

Attach a Go-Pro to the end and you’ll have a DIY colonoscopy device.

Is getting your butt off the back of the saddle no longer a thing?

I would like to watch someone with that saddle sprint to the line with a final bike throw. That would be entertaining.

Related story. A co-worker of one of my employees invented the "same" thing in the late 70s, early 80's. The inventor was not a cyclist (of course) but he "knew" that if you had a backrest/hook of sorts, you could generate all kinds of power. He borrowed heavily from his mother, and finally was granted a patent after a small fortune was spent on fees, drawings, and a "working" model.

Nobody was interested (both cyclists, and the industry) so after years of trying, he finally hatched his master plan. He drove to Schwinn (wherever they were at the time) from Santa Barbara, California, and lay in wait in the parking lot, with full view of the executive parking section. He (the inventor, now deceased) accosted the then owner, and basically cornered him. He gave the spiel while clutching the monstrosity of a seat, extolling its virtues undoubtedly.

Well, Schwinn told him to beat it of course.

How did I hear this story? I was conducting interviews, and this older (as in should be retired, poor fellow) guy goes through the process. One of my employees sees him leaving, and says "How's it been, Glen!" They chat for a minute. Later I asked my guy about it, and he told me this story, and some other hijinks ole' Glen had done in the day.

It is, but with that saddle it requires lube.

Here we go again.

From the early 1990s until just a few months ago, I used a J. A. Stein "Seat B.A.R." on the back of my Unicanitor. It was most useful for holding two water bottles on my Raleigh Pro (which has no bottle bosses), but did provide some ability to provide support while seated while climbing. Yes, it did prevent moving off the back of the saddle during hard braking, but I didn't find it to be a problem. The only reason I'm not using it at the moment is because the saddle I replaced the Unicanitor with has a much different angle on the saddle rail in the back than older 1970s-80s saddles, which means the bar is way off vertical when installed.

A photo on my bike from when it was installed:

It's been done before. I think somebody had one on an old TT bike in the 80s, maybe Cinelli. But I'm too lazy to look it up. I predict in early 2024, someone is going to "invent" a rubber bladder that holds air in bike tires.
