I never sat on the padding it came with because i had it sent directly to a re-upholsterer, but clearly this is better the the short saddle in terms of versatility
the batch i got had bolts in the wrong position, easy fix, with a Dremel rotary tool
not an issue anymore because its been fixed.
ariel rider refunded my purchase and let me keep their seat. all i had to do was cut the center bolts.
would be nice if they were able to just sell the plastic framing of this seat at a discount, the reupholstering process required me buying this seat and stripping the padding and fabric, so 90 bucks for a plastic frame, would be nice if they were able to supply the known upholsterers with a few so they can streamline that process.
I am glad to finally have the long saddle and it looks great and comfy! I have yet to test it out due to the hot weather here in Phoenix! Its cooling down finally! By Halloween I will be Ghost Riding everyday!!
Must have if you are over 5'-10" in height IMHO. This will help you get into a better pedaling position. It also looks like it fits the bike.
Still patiently waiting as of 555 pm September 15,2021. Supposed to arrive today.
