    I have a hot spot that hurts after about a hour of riding. I have tried a air seat but it doesn't help much. I have no problem with my seats on my other bikes any suggestions?

    Either buy a custom seat or get an upholsterer to remove some of the foam and replace with memory foam. I can tell you who to go to in the UK but that’s not much use in Ohio!

    Hi Murphy,

    Just searching through the site to look for options for altering the seat on my 2020 CT and saw your comments. Do you have a name & address of someone how can alter the seat in the UK? I am more interesting in lowering the seating position by a fraction (maybe 10 to15 mm) but don't want to go down the lowering kit option. The bike is great but just want a little more stability when stationery as it weights about the same as the moon.

    Thanks Vince

    Hi, I used a guy called Tony Archer in Bradford, Yorkshire. Mobile 07305744141  Great service.  Very experienced upholsterer and not expensive.    I'm very happy with mine

    Thanks Gruff - Bradford is a long way for me. I see a couple of other posters have suggested somewhere in Sussex so reckon I will give them a try. Vince
