The fit and form of the X-Class are perfect for my needs. I split time between the burbs and mountains and it's perfect for both places. Chose the long seat so I could handle passengers and I'm happy I did so. Love this bike!
It fits me better than the short saddle and feels more comfortable. Looks very nice on my bike!
I prefer the long saddle over the short, for the extra room and if I ride someone they can me comfortable too.
The foam in the padded seat is too hard, makes the bike too tall and it is hard on the arse.. I would recommend a softer foam and about an inch in its thickness taken off. I already changed the shock on the x-class seat which lowered the height by 1 inch, at least now my feet are flat on the ground.
