Here's what a recent customer had to say about her experience in our store:
I was one of a group of 30 women who cycled on the Underground Railroad Route last May and made a stop at the Peninsula store...They were awesome. The shop was incredibly well equipped and had lots of neat stuff for us to buy (that is the idea, right?!!)...The guys who worked there treated us women very, very well (as opposed to some other shops where we were seen as a bunch of idiots, and several were ripped off). You all even oohed and aahed over the gorgeous bikes that some of the women had! -- Anne from Tennessee
We've Got A Seat For You - Selecting the right saddle can be a daunting task. There are hundreds of models ranging from titanium-rail race versions to plush comfort saddles. And, a wide range of materials and designs are used to enhance comfort including gel, springs, foam, special cutaway tops and gender-specific shapes. For recreational riding where you sit upright and pedal at a regular pace, a medium-width model with plenty of cushioning is usually best. If you ride more strenuously over longer distances, pedaling at a fast rate, a narrow seat is usually better because wider ones can cause chafing on your inner thighs. Keep in mind that, with any saddle, it takes a few rides to break your body into the saddle and usually, the more frequently you ride, the sooner you'll be comfortable. If you're still hurting after a few rides, however, it's an indication that the seat isn't right for your anatomy and you should try different types until you find one that works. Check out our selection. We've got saddles to meet every need.
