    Hi Guys, is there any compromise on comfort with the low seat option ?

    Hi Hjatland,

    I have a low seat and my butt is numb after an hour. I am buying another one which will allow me to strip it down and hopefully remodel it with memory foam and shave another 20mm off it if possible!!

    Failing that i will be looking at a lowering kit and put the standard seat back on, hopefully its better on the butt.

    Fingers crossed.

    As far as im concerned i dont find any difference in comfort and i have a low seat on permanently.

    3 weeks ago we did a 330 mile day , 1 week ago i did a similar mileage and this weekend  it wasn't far off 300.

    All rides went well with only the slightest of discomfort after such reasonable days ridnig.

    Good luck on your choice, you could always re-sell it as well.  :028:
    keep it shiny side up !!!

    Thank you.  I have only done about 500 miles in total with the bike and longest trip 120 miles in one go which was fine.  I can pretty much flat foot with my Doc Martin D 30 boots, so I`m not so desperate yet.   I`m away soon for a longer run so will see after that, just wonder what a trip with "normal soled" boots would be like.  Maybe just wear the big boots all the all the time !
