Swapping saddles on a Kickr Bike

My wife is getting into biking and to save having two bikes constantly set up she has allowed me to buy a Kickr Bike for us to share.

The adjustability will be great, the only problem will be the saddle. She is used to a big soft mountain bike one but I like my standard road saddle.

Is there anyone out there sharing a bike who swaps saddles in a workable way? I don’t want to have to mess with taking them on and off the rails a lot so was wondering about a spare seat post if that comes out easily enough.

Suggestions?

I was thinking about the same problem but then my wife got pregnant and I dropped the ball on a viable solution.

The easiest would be to swap out the whole seatpost in between users. Comes off without a problem. Maybe you could write Wahoo and ask for a spare one?

All the reviews I’ve read say that the Kickr bike seatpost is a standard size so you should be able to get a spare from your local bike shop.

If it is just a case of swapping the seat post that makes things a lot easier.

I guess I’m used to companies who make everything bespoke so you can’t use off the shelf kit with them.

From the DC Rainmaker review:

While this seat-post does have a special ruler on the back of it, you can actually swap it out for any seat-post of your liking. This allows you to have two saddles (perhaps for two family members) and easily swap them. I suspect some day Wahoo will also offer secondary seat posts as accessories in an online store or something.

Perfect, thanks.

We just swap the seatpost with the saddle between us - standard size seat post on the Kickr so completely straightforward.
