How do I fix a tear in my bike seat?

How do you soften a leather bike saddle?
The most common is to soak the saddle in hot water for 5 or 10 minutes, then take it out and rub lots of Mink Oil into the leather, on the top and bottom. After you’ve massaged the leather for 10 minutes, ride the saddle for a short ride, in an old pair of shorts. Let the saddle sit overnight.
How do I clean my bike saddle?
bike saddle and seat cover If you have a leather seat, use a leather brush and some light dish soap to scrub the saddle.
