Fortunately, these can be avoided or mitigated through the following points.

Step 1: Carefully feel that if your lower back starts to feel stiff, you can’t ignore the damage caused by the cushion.

If you think that this is just a process and you can adapt to it by slowly practicing “Iron Fart Skill”, you are totally wrong.

If you continue to ride regardless of the danger signals sent by your body, you will have more serious consequences.
