Re: Soft springs on new seat
I've had good luck adapting automotive valve springs to bike seats. I usually build my saddles and don't use standard bike parts but the spring rates available range from very firm to soft depending on what engine they are meant for. The last seat I built I used big block Chevy springs. I also made them adjustable for a softer or firmer ride.
