Animal bike saddle covers

animal-bike-covers.jpg

Sometimes I just stare at a product in disbelief. That's what happened a few moments ago with these animal bike saddle covers. I sat and imagined what kind of life the people who buy things like these have. I'm envious that such a silly item has the ability to make that type of person a little bit happier. I also thought of the fact that they could put this on their bike and not care whether people laughed at them on the street, or that their friends would talk about them behind their back. It makes me sad that I don't have that security. The security that would allow me to pay Vincon $12 for a dog, bear or goat saddle cover.

I'm a long-time Popgadget reader and also an avid cyclist, and I just had to de-lurk today to say: These are freakishly odd... I mean, a goat?! Baffling!

Myf:

I am that person. I would have bought the bear version right away, if shipping to the UK wasn't so hugely expensive.

Maybe you have to be a cyclist to understand...

Heysuz:

I use a hideous plastic bag over my bike saddle to keep it dry during the car rides to and from ride sights if its raining outside or just to protect my saddle from the elements. I would never actually buy one of these and use them while riding but as a cover for protection I think they're cute.

Erin:

If you know what a "beater bike" is then you will know that this would be perfect for one. I have a bubble-gum pink one from 1966 that is dying for the bear. Dying... where's my credit card...

Keri:

I thought this was so ridiculous, but I know my mother would flip to have one! Luckily Mothers day is Sunday! But to the US shipping is 9x the price of the item! And I can't find others anywhere, I checked e-Bay, and google. Oh well!
