It is known that, while climbing, one should apply consistent and maximum weight to their saddle, in order to have precious rear tire traction.
The other day I was going down a dirt road, and the road irregularities and scattered stones, bounced the rear wheel maybe up to 15-20cm in the air. My concerns are two:
- loss of rear traction, while the wheel is in air
- the saddle hitting me from behind, and throwing me over the handlebhars.
Should I attempt to apply some pressure on the saddle? In what way?
For example, I imagine that I can close my tights, thus clamping the seat and having some control over it.
