Lately I’ve been practicing riding SIF a lot, (great leg workout), and have been making good progress. On my trials uni sif works great with the trials handle saddle because it’s just a barely padded handlebar both front and back. It’s not comfortable, but you can grab that thing any way you like. On my muni however I have a medium handle saddle and it does not seem to be well suited at all to grabbing it by the back of the saddle, especially not with a saddlebag mounted below it.
What I’ve been practicing is riding sif while holding the front of the saddle instead. My thinking here is that it will make it easier to switch the skills to the muni later. It’s a little harder to ride this way, but very easy to transition back and forth between sif and normal riding.
How many of you actually use sif when riding muni and for those that use handle saddles what’s your experience with riding them sif?
