New Product: Integrated Saddle Lock Mount

Just wanted to offer up a quick peak into a new product that should be available in the near future. The new CB-300 Saddle from Serfas is a dedicated commuter saddle that for the first time (that I have seen) incorporates an integrated U-Lock Mount. I obviously had to find out if this really works. It was designed with a specific serfas brand lock in mind, however I wanted to see if it works with a lock that most of us actually use. In Boston at least the Kryptonite EVO mini is probably the most used lock by people who have a nice bike and really care about keeping it, and guess what, it’s a perfect fit.

The only negative I can think here is that this is a commuter saddle and a little bit wider than what most people ride on their track bikes or single speeds, but not by much. If it were any narrower I think the lock would be too wide and therefor your legs would rub on it on every pedal stroke.

I look forward to actually getting to test this new saddle because it looks a great idea. I wouldn’t be surprised if it caught on in the industry and there became many other saddles designed this way or maybe even u-locks specifically designed to fit into narrower saddles.

Our regular customers will know we have been stocking Urban Velo’s Bike Mag in the shop for years. They send us a new issue every couple months and we have a stack near our door that is free for customers to pick up as long as supplies last.
