Hey guys, have an opportunity to pick up a saddlemen solo seat for around half price, but I read that it drops the seat height by at least an inch. I'm 6.1, any other tall riders have experience with this seat?
Is the peg extension a DIY job, or do you require more advanced mechanical skills?I have one and I found it lowered me and pushed me closer to the bars by about an inch or so. I'm 6'4" so I found that inch made a big difference and made it uncomfortable for me. To fix it, I added forward extensions to my pegs that pushed them out about 4 or 4 1/2 inches. Now the bike feels great. I purchased the extensions from a user on these forums. Grumpyworth is his handle.
The seat is awesome. I can ride all day without any discomfort at all.
