Added the newest "comfort" option on Monday night... a Rick Mayer Cycles rebuilt heated seat in black leather.
Opinion after 2 days riding to/from work....
Major difference in butt comfort, feels much more like I'm sitting in a seat, rather than "over" the seat.. the extra width at the back is much better for support.
It does feel slightly more uncomfortable coming to a stop, because its just a little bit harder to get my feet straight down to the road without having to almost slide forward a touch, but I'm sure I'll get used to that, and as the new leather and foam padding breaks in its likely to become more supple. I'd love to have an option to dip the front of the seat down just a touch, maybe 5-10mm would do it.....
Cost - ridiculous (at the moment) Hopefully I wont feel that way after the Snowy Ride, and will better appreciate the craftsmanship and knowledge that has gone into building it.
I think the only way to get a truly comfortable result would be the ride-in option for a "fitting", of course thats a little hard for us.
I still have my old seat, and will keep it for a while in case I change my mind or want to try a different (perhaps local) build, now that they'd have something to compare it to.
Still.... I'll give it a 7.5/10 so far!
If anyone wants to know what I think about the process of buying a seat from OS, PM me
