History


GABS Saddle was designed by George Andrews, Courtenay, British Columbia, Canada, as a result of Thousands of cycled kilometers.

George cycles almost every day and has done so since he decided in May 1994, at the age of 65 to cycle across Canada.  He completed the 'cross-country' journey in 1995 when he cycled from Tofino, BC to Cape Spear, Newfoundland.  In June of 1996 he cycled to Salt Lake City, USA.

In the summer of 1996, he cycled from Inuvik, Northwest Territories to Calgary, Alberta.  the above photograph is George leaving Inuvik on the 40 day journey to Calgary.  800 kilometres of that journey was over the shale gravel Dempster Highway.  He well remembers the nearly constant cleaning of the bicycle gears over that stretch of road!  In 1998, George cycled from Toronto to Point Pelee, Ontario thus completing the entire Trans Canada Trail.

In the summer of 1999, George cyled from Courtenay to the Queen Charlotte Islands.  It was during that journey that he was inspired to patent and market his unique bicycle saddle design.

As you will discover, this saddle is a novel combination of common sense, comfort and durability.
