The bike saddle is a very important component of your bike.  In fact, its one of the 5 places where your body actually comes into contact with the bike, and often carries more than half of your body weight.
Heres a few pieces of important information to remember:

     saddles carry some weight
     seats carry all weight
– The Saddle can be adjusted 3 ways:
     height
