Our Saddle And Grip Library Program

Saddle Library

Finding a saddle that fits you perfectly can be one of the most difficult things to do. Everybody's body is just a little bit different than everyone else and finding a saddle that works perfectly for YOU is of paramount importance.

There are quite a few elements to proper saddle fit that include but are not limited to - 
  • body position on the bike
  • your flexibility
  • type of bike
  • underlying medical issues or previous injuries 
 To help you find the perfect saddle, we have assembled a complete collection across a wide spectrum of styles and price points.

Try before you buy and be confident in your purchase.

Here is how the program works:
  • purchase a $25 saddle library card from BikeBike
  • you now have access to up to 24 different saddles - with more then half of them being women's specific models
  • our staff will measure your sit bones using a special seat pad you sit on and suggest some options we think might be suitable based on our conversation about the bike you're riding, your position on the bike, and your riding style
  • you can "check out" any single saddle for up to 7 days. Upon return, you can check out another, and so on, and so on, until to find the perfect one for you
  • when you find the perfect saddle in our library and decide to purchase it, your $25 library card purchase is deducted from the price
  • Simple!

Here are the brands of saddles we will have in the library:

Grip Library

New for 2019 is the addition of a collection of grips to our library program.

Holding, steering, and braking are the main tasks that are controlled through the bicycle grip and while performing these tasks, you should be comfortable. Only a grip which fits perfectly to the hand can accomplish this.

Not to be forgotten or otherwise overlooked, your connection to your bike at your hands is as important as the saddle. Too often people suffer with uncomfortable hands, numbness in the arms and shoulders, or worse.

Many of these conditions can be mitigated with a different grip selection.

Our grip library is comprised of the following models:

SQ Labs
  • 702 City
  • 710 Trekking
  • 711 Tech and Trail
  • GP1 Touring
  • GC1 Touring
  • GA2 MTB
  • GA3 MTB
