You can imagine how imperative it is to have a comfortable seat. My cycling partner Roy prefers a traditional seat whereas I have my trusty Spiderflex which I have 20,000 kilometers of experience sitting on. Everywhere I go, cyclists and passersby comment on it. I was supposed to do some filming from my bike yesterday and the producer asked if my bike seat was a "Non - man ball crusher"?

But comfort while riding for long periods of time extends to the other components of your bike. Take for instance the handlebars. Mine are nice and wide and I've added extenders wrapped in foamy handlebar tape. The handlebar extenders allow for numerous hand positions and I've mounted a mirror to the left side and a bike bell to the other.
