Adamo and Eve

Adamo seat

Behold, the ISM Adamo tri saddle.

In the beginning, there were wooden bicycle seats. Then man discovered rubber. And he padded a metal seat with rubber to soften the ride. And it was good.

Then man created plastics. He invented spandex, vinyl, carbon fiber, gel-foam, and other materials that promised better riding through chemicals. Man applied the chemicals to the bicycle seat. He made the saddle narrower and the nose longer to help him ride faster. And man saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.

But man did not want to ride alone. He told woman, Let’s ride together. And woman sat on the bicycle seat and asked, How do you stand this kick-in-the-soft-stuff? Man said, Suck it up princess. Woman said, Behold, this is not good. And man rode alone again.

And then someone–a woman, perhaps–created new bicycle seats with wider saddles and shorter noses and central grooves that are kind to soft parts. Because not everyone is the same. And woman does not like to be called a delicate flower, even if she is one.

And that is why this Eve has an Adamo seat that keeps her Genesis parts (a.k.a. “junk”) off the front. And it is good. It is very good.
