The Assometer

I thought the bike shop was joking when they told my sister they could get the assometer out to properly measure her for a saddle. I decided to google this just for fun and to my surprise there is actually such a thing out there. Specialized bikes have come up with this concept to measure your ischial tuberosities (otherwise known as your sit bones). Apparently no matter how much or how little padding you have it does not correlate to the width of your sit bones as most people would believe. Therefore you could have a really big assometer reading and actually have a very little behind and vice versa. Due to this anomaly Specialized developed this pad that you sit on and then they measure the indentations made by your sit bones to determine which width of saddle you need.
This makes me curious to find out who has the bigger assometer reading. Me or my sister. Who would have ever thought of such a thing? Specialized bikes, I guess.


  1. Just for the record, I have the 'smaller' assometer reading. Who would have ever guessed! You certainly wouldn't think so by looking at our asses! :-)

  2. Uncle ME said I wouldn't know. All I know is that this is the first time I ever heard of an Assmeter. Did they have one your size?? Pre riding I think it was rather broad. HAHA.

  3. Go and register to hang out with other persons that play Mafia wars.
    It can look nearly rude but if you publish thoroughly and create
    with a superior nature, most men and women will be
    flattered that you have asked them to join your loved ones.

    Once there, select the solo option and then start a multiplayer game
    by selecting the bottom character on the character
