Strengths:    2nd Generation gel has none of the problems of original gel (ie: butt does not pinch gel aside on long rides). Lycra or spandex cover helps wick away moisture. Between the gel and the springs this seat is VERY cushy.

Weaknesses:    The Lycra (or spandex?)cover ain't the most durable against abrasion and the seat did squeak a small but annoying amount. This was easily cured by dis-assembling and greasing the critical contact points under the seat frame. No problems since .

Bottom Line:   
I highly recommend this seat. I'm 235lbs and the stock seat would tear me up in 5 miles. I put this seat on my mountain bike and though my fitness is not so hot my ability is pretty high and I show it no mercy . It really takes the pounding out of the trail and away from my butt. It even got better when (after a few months)I paired it with a suspension post. I never quite understood those who said that after a while , my butt would toughen up. Who WANTS a tough butt??
I do feel that I could use a narrower seat for serious mountain biking and eventually will go with a tri-flex or air-flex , both from Trico. Trico will ALWAYS get first consideration on any future seat purchase from me. It,s that good !!

1982 Sweetheart Cycles Moto Cruiser S/N MC3 028 (Pre-Yeti FRO)

Moto Cruisers were the predecessor to the Yeti FRO, and very few examples appear to have survived. With help from the original owner, who bought it when he graduated from high school, the original configuration has been restored. The crankset is original to the bike. This bike was raced in the vi ... Read More »

Should I get a mountain bike or a regular comfort/cruiser bike?

I'm looking for a bike that I will ride to school every morning and back (I live about 3/4 of a mile away) and that will last a long time. I hope for it to cover a lot of ground with each pedal, so I considered a mountain bike, which I think is durable and made for speed. But, on the other hand, is ... Read More »

Stretched Cruiser modified into Cargo Bike?

I'm wondering if there's a reason this hasn't been tried. Probably the low quality of the donor bikes. But I wonder if this is worth discussing. Looking at some cheap stretched cruisers with forward pedals, long chainstays, long top tubes, and long swept back bars, it occurred to me that with m ... Read More »
