We exist to help you make cycling a daily part of your life.
We believe that life is better by bike. Every one of our products is created with you riding your bike in mind. If our products don't work for you, we want to work with you to try something else that we make or refund your purchase.
At Planet Bike we dream about bikes. We dream about people riding bikes: riding to work, riding to school, riding bikes to the grocery store, concerts, sporting events, coffee shops and grandma’s house, too. We also dream about the day when all cities and towns are safe and convenient places for cyclists.
We pledge time, resources and profits to organizations working for sustainable transportation solutions. We love the balance that the bicycle brings to the world and its power to make people, communities and the planet healthier.
The reasons that we love riding and want others to share the love are as numerous as our pedal strokes. The sport of cycling thrills us; but, for us it’s equally thrilling to unlock the potential of the bicycle as a simple and efficient means of transportation. Riding in place of driving reduces air and noise pollution. It boosts endorphins and clears the head. Riding strengthens the cardiovascular system, gives you good strong legs, and burns extra calories, to boot. Besides all that, it’s a whole heck of a lot of fun.
Just as we are conscious of the way cycling affects people and the environment, we are also aware of the impact that our products have on them. We’re sensitive to the lifecycle of our products. We pay keen attention to everything from ensuring a fair wage for factory workers, designing products to be both durable and fixable, minimizing packaging and using recyclable materials whenever, wherever we can.

Honestly, I even use this saddle on my rain/beater/f**k it bike (my bike that I ride around town and do not wear a bib/chamois). I put this saddle on my sister's mountain bike (her daily ride) and she has not complained once and says it is a comfy seat.
Now, if you do have the money and/or have a nice bike, spend the real money and get a Brooks or Selle Italia saddle as they are not made of synthetic materials and do not absorb water like a sponge when they get wet. So if you do use this saddle in the rain GET fenders and use a plastic bag to cover the saddle.
I do not purchase these saddles for my store through Amazon, I use a whole seller for that, but I did buy this product from Amazon as a test, and that is how I figured out it was a saddle worth selling in the shop for $30. That is why I say it is the best cheap saddle you can buy!
The Provelo was the cushiest seat of the three, but I tended to wiggle around too much on this seat....as if the padding was shifting within the seat. Not to a great degree but enough to notice. The Bikero provided a better "fit", but ultimately lost out to the Planet Bike.
I conducted a three week test, where each seat was used on the identical 21 miles trip. I'm not sure if the covering material will hold up, but we will see. At this point, I am very satisfied. I am 6'3"" and 225 pounds with seat(s) installed on a Giant Roam 2 (XL frame) and ride an average of 20 miles every other week. As noted, it does not come with any mounting equipment; it's just the seat
The mounting rails are very short compared to my stock cannondale seat. It does not have much room for adjust forward and back. Could be an issue if you have your seat near the front or back rails.
All in all I am not happy with this purchase and replaced it in just a few months.
I was so happy with it that I decided to move it to my road bike today and go for a long ride. I just back and now ordering another so I have one on my mountain bike and one on my road bike. The first one I had was the black with spandex material. no issues with quality after 6 or so rides. I am ordering the leather white/black one today for the road bike.
If you have any pain and it keeps you from riding your bike, this is a great solution. Probably not the highest "performance" seat, but I don;t seem to lose anything as a casual/intermediate rider.
I’m not sure why anyone would give this seat anything less than 5 stars!!! It’s clearly a seat for a road/mtn bike, it’s not a super-plush super-wide seat that belongs on cruiser. Compared to most road/mtn bikes seats you’ll find in a bike store, this is VERY inexpensive. I highly recommend buying this seat to replace the seat that came with any road/mtn bike!

I take 1-star off because I think it's unnecessarily too long; the tip portion sticks out too much. It can be like 1 inch shorter and it will be perfect. Sounds like a minor thing, but in practice, it gets in the way when you get off and on the saddle, for example on stop lights.
I would recommend extra care in buying this product, it has to fit your anatomy.
