Starting tomorrow, August 21st, and going until August 24th, Triathlon LAB in Santa Monica is participating in the Slowtwitch Saddle Tour!
Visiting 39 bike shops in 22 metro areas, the Slowtwitch Saddle Tour is traveling across the country to help triathletes find their ideal saddle.
For those who don’t know, the Slowtwitch Saddle Tour was set up because 68 percent of Slowtwitch readers are unsatisfied with their tri bike saddle. With the Saddle Tour, you may try out multiple saddles in your ideal racing position; you do not need to bring your bike as each location (TriLAB included!) will provide the necessary equipment to allow you to try out multiple saddles within your 30 minute time.
While you do not need to bring your bike, we do recommend you bring your bike measurements, to ensure you get the most out of your saddle experience. With your bike measurements, we can set up your positioning to accurately reflect what your race conditions will be, allowing you to know for sure whether a saddle will work for you or not. If you don’t have this info, we would strongly recommend scheduling a bike fit appointment with our fitter once you find your ideal saddle.
The Saddle Tour is NOT a bike fitting. We will get you into a working position for the saddle demo, but there is not enough time to do a proper bike fit, and that’s not what you’re signing up for, anyway.
If you plan on attending, please make an appointment! No walk-ins will be accepted! Call us at 310-581-6100 if you plan on attending. Once again, this is for the Triathlon LAB in Santa Monica only which is located at:
3328 Pico Blvd Santa Monica CA, 90405
If you already have your appointment (Smart!) be sure to bring your cycling shoes, pedals, kit (shorts/top), and a positive attitude. If you have any questions, give us call, shoot us an email, or stop by the store.
