    Heated saddle

    With it turning that time of year again alot of people are gearing up for the cold and I am wondering if anybody has ever made a heated bike saddle. I looked online and couldn't find anything for sale, just a few homemade ones and was wondering if anybody here has done anything like that or has any words of wisdom, I think I might try to make my own if I can find a decent element and a way to power it. Thanks.
    All vintage all the time. Nothing like a nice chromo frame with some properly adjusted cantilevers.

    My car has heated seats.
    A garage full of steel frames means happiness.

    Just wear wool, it regulates temprature better than any synthetic.

    Seeing as I have some dense padding between my @$$ and the saddle, and the fact that I am out of the saddle often, and the fact that my rear end is not a problematic area in terms of getting cold.... not sure I even see the point.
    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.

    Was just thinking about a heated saddle malfunctioning and the first part that could possibly touch it.

    OUUCCHHHH!

    Sounds like a Darwin award candidate.

    All You Need

    is a driver's seat from a Volvo 240 from the 1980's. Kinda heavy, but available from junkyards across the USA. Mount the switch on your handlebars. Hook the seat heating element up to your battery, and go. You do have a battery?

    Would this battery also power heated pedals? If so, it would save people a lot of misery.

    Just go for one of those big wooly sheepskin saddle covers that we're popular in the 70's!
