Super comfy seat for old folks doing upright street riding
« on: September 08, 2023, 08:50:20 AM »
I was looking to get a comfy extra padded seat for my upright city street riding. Rad City 5+. 27mm post right now with the Rad seat mount 50mm seat rails. 200lbs large butt 70+ years old. :-[
Thanks

I am glad you brought this topic up. Everyone on this community either want speed or range. On a regular bicycle I can only endure 10 to 20 km ride then it gets uncomfortable for me. I am also in search of a comfortable seat that would extend my riding pleasure.

Once I get my bike, the first thing I am planning to do is remove the seat post and replace it with the Trek suspension seat post that I already have.

Until then I am keeping an eye on the replies from others.

Well I put the Cloud9 seat on using the existing hardware and I just love it! Now at least I don't start the ride in discomfort.

FOR ALL to know.  Cloud9 makes several different seats.  None will feel exactly the same.
