Popular Post Ride & Shine Posted March 12, 2020 Popular Post Share Posted March 12, 2020 Hi Everyone, Been a member for a while now and have benefited greatly from the generous knowledge sharing going on...thanks. Now it's my turn to make a contribution. I hope you find the info useful. I'm 180 cms/6 foot with a 34 inch/86.4 cms inseam. I could flat foot comfortably on the stock seat but found it too uncomfortable on any ride over 30 mins. Plus I didn't like the way it looked on the bike and the two piece design was annoying as I like to stash a few items in battery compartment. Enter the Rally seat, adds 35mm to the seat height which is very noticeable when you throw your leg over plus sitting on the bike you’ve got a lofty view! The Rally seat is more comfortable than stock for sure plus I’ve put a cool cover on it which adds a bit more cushioning. With the Rally seat I found getting my foot down (yep I’m a one foot down guy) needed a full cheek off the seat which around the city (Sydney) can be a bit tricky at short notice. Plus since 90% of my riding is on the tarmac I decided to get the 30mm lowering kit and drop the front forks 25mm. End result = perfection! Bike is comfortable, stable, I can see as far forward as I need, I can flat foot in an instant plus the bike looks aesthetically more balanced. The pics give a good overview of what you’re getting but the only way to know if it’s for you is to commit, hopefully my experience will help you make the call plus feel free to flick me any questions if you want to drill down on any aspect of the seat…happy to offer my personal perspective. Ride safe! 9 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
