i need a better seat any ideas ? 1 2 3 or 4 ?
I've had the same question lately and I think the verdict is exercise. My butt ain't what it once was.
Whats the reason for needing a better seat? Discomfort? Where?
If you want a tractor like w i d e seat, look at the yard sales for an exercise bike.

i thought of an metal tractor seat if i could find one in my price range, I often think a lot of palces where you can find things for sale in classifieds and auctions , that people really fall for stuff that you can get a lot , and i do mean a lot cheaper at retail stores ,, bottom line a lot of places online are letting too many price jacking vendors in !..........

I got a big cloud9 seat and it is nice. Looks like #4.
I detest the tiny monkey seats that come on most bikes. Along with that get a suspension seat post.

hmm a suspension seat post i did not know they exsited .. wonder if target carries them ? p.s. i like the target in mobile al -- if nothing else i will try to do somthing with a spring from an porch swing or something and an big cloud9 seat... hey thanks !!!
I have a full suspension pedal only bike that I use seat number 1 on. It is WONDERFUL. It doesn't "bother the boys". I had to move my handle bars up higher so I'm sitting on it flat. If I lean forward to much it makes me slide off the back. I highly recommend it for a seat.....................
How about Niagara Cycle (I know they have a lot of different size posts) or Nashbar,or K-mart (I did buy a sus. post from K-mart).
These posts come in Metric sizes, so measure carefully. One of those dial calipers that are on sale often at HF are real handy- they read in both sae and met.

No, it's a Greyhound. I have two Greyhound rescues. That's what I use the pedal bike for. It's the most efficient way to exercise them.............
not meaning to get off thread but why didnt ya say so

i went to a smaller comfort seat which you can buy at bike world usa.com...i'm 235lb and have a good size butt, and the smaller cruiser seats just fits better..different colors, etc..Dennis...and only 14.95
Here is a very nice and comfortable seat I would suggest:
Felt FB Cruiser Seat - Felt Bicycles
Felt 1903 Cruiser Seat - Felt Bicycles
The tried and true here is a sprung Bell cruiser saddle from WalMart- about $16 available everywhere-
I originally went with a steel suspension post too from e-bay about 18 dollars and a must for motor bikes
but I since got an alloy one from Amazon for the same price- if the seat has standard rails, some posts have the alloy part to replace the steel clamp too- light and comfortable.
