Date Reviewed: July 13, 2001

Strengths:    tough as nails.. I've thrown my bike down loads of crap landings... and it's held up well

Weaknesses:    (on the fully Kevlar version) ALL MY RIDING TROUSERS HAVE HOLES IN THEM. These Kevlar things wear trouser out dead fast. (plus it's like a sponge in Mud.)

Bottom Line:   
solid.. cheap. tough and good if you hate all your favourite riding trousers.

Date Reviewed: May 3, 2000

Strengths:    Cheap (£20), cromo rails (strong) and Kevlar bits

Weaknesses:    Not the most comfortable seat in the world

Bottom Line:   
Good for the money and if like me your seat is only there to stop the seat post going up your arse when you mess up a no-footer it does the job OK! See www.dirtjump.co.uk for cool photos of dirt jumping.

Strengths:    
~~Comfort-especially for men.
~~Tic marks for fine adjustment.
~~Looks.
~~Price


Weaknesses:    
Maybe a little more padding. Not big though


Bottom Line:   
I just bought this seat. Others either wore out or broke. This was a great investment. Most I've seen it for was $40. I got mine for way less. Cool graphics. No pressure on Mr.Willie, so guys-BUY THIS SEAT!! Slim profile makes it very easy to slide off back while descending. Weighs about 280 grams. I also mount a bag under it, and there is no problem with it there.

So this might be a bit of an odd topic, but I am sure I'm not the only one with this problem so I'm OKwith that. :thumbsup: On longer rides (which for me are 25-40 miles on the road bike, and 5+ on single track) if I spend a lot of time in the saddle, 3 things seem to happen.
