That Lidl are selling a heated saddle!

It's got a battery and will heat the surface of the saddle to 40 degrees C.
Not sure if it's designed for comfort or as a form of male contraception.
Available from Sunday 25th.

That's got to be the daftest idea I come across yet.I've never,ever felt the need for a heated saddle :?

Heated handlebars would be much more useful.

Just another item from the popular range --> Let's just keep filling the world with manufactured crap, regardless of the consequences.

Will that be the end of cycling? Just wait until it becomes compulsory.

Had a look. Bonkers of course.
But some of the other stuff looks like a return to more sensible well priced stuff.
The lightset for instance.
Worth folk checking out I think.

£13 or so - seems to be the same as the ones they were selling for £20?

so it looks like was just plain greed?
