2 questions for you.............You can easily use a DIY method, pick a large shallow baking tray large enough for your bum to fit into. Mix some flour, eggs, butter and sugar together enough to fill about halfway up the pan, pour this into the pan and bake at gas mark 5 for 20 minutes, take out and allow to cool.
Place pan with slightly cooled contents on a chair, remove keks and lower your bottom onto the now cooked mix, stay still for a few minutes without moving, then gently raise yourself, hey presto you have a mould to take your measurements from.
If on standing some of the mix comes away with you, then I suggest carrying out the whole proceedings again from the start, this time greasing your bum.
The wife would not let me use one of her pans, so I went to a local bike shop, not a lot of use to you though as Lincoln is not local to you.
Must say I was pleased with the Botrager I bought after being measured.
ThanksSeriously, you can sit on some tinfoil on a step and measure between the points left by your sit bones
But getting measured, however you do it, really doesn't guarantee you'll find a comfy saddle (this assumes you have determined that the saddles on your new bikes aren't actually comfortable?!)
Why not just call a couple of good LBSs locally and ask? Bit of initiative needed that doesn't involve bakingAppreciate that...........thanks.
I did know they did the measure thingymajigs but are 20 miles away...........wondered if anyone in or around Warrington did it.
I did read that idea and will do it but.......if there is a LBS with proper bum measuring equipment it would be worth checking out.
