Default Re: Are banana seats comfortable?

I installed one on a bike and it looked great but our club makes long rides and 60 to 70 miles is common. After a day on that narrow little seat my skinny butt was sore. Short rides were okay but for long distances something a little more cushy would be better.

If you can do it, or know someone who does upholstery you might want to consider adding some padding. I sold the bike with the banana seat so I never tried to soften it up.
