Saddles for REAL MEN!

image Wimpy men ride on soft, padded bicycle seats. Real men ride on rock-hard seats. Literally. Sheldon Brown is selling Real MAN © Saddles made out of solid granite from Canada's rugged Gaspé peninsula. In order to qualify for purchase of this product, a chemical analysis of your blood will be performed to determine that your testosterone level is high enough to ride the Real MAN © saddle.

Some context may be in order. Brown runs the most comprehensive bicycle website on the planet, as part of his job at a Massachusetts bike shop. But every April 1st, he does a new and improbable bike product (you can see previous efforts at the bottom of the Real Man Saddles site). Really though, these are more parodies than hoaxes, since they tend to mock the kind of pseudoscience often used to sell real bicycle products.
