The day after my first mountain bike ride of the season, my bum hurrrts enough to not want to get back on the bike for a few days, even with my ergonomically correct memory foam padded seat - would hate to have a sore bum ruin your burn ;-)

Bounce530 wrote:Problem I see with a duct taped seat would be, the glue of the tape will become soft due to the heat of the day and your butt bouncing around on it. The tape will move, slide, and roll, your butt will stick to the glue that is exposed, creating a mess, plus like what was mentioned it would most likely create moop. But hey, you might like duct tape boogers on your ass, who knows...could make for some interesting convo starters...

Shambala, funny you should post a photo of my ass, but alas, big asses hurt just like lil asses on hard seats. You see the padding all smoooshes over the sides and doesn't land where you need it, on the bum bones. ;-o

I tried a seat with springs last year, and it was just great. really took the jarring bumps out of the ride.

Most recumbent bikes have big, well-padded seats (perforce), but I found that not enough cush for my tuckus. So I wrapped the seat in a sheepskin. The big fluffy ones you get from New Zealand. Spent hours and hours whacking it to get the better part of the Playa out of it, but seeing as wool is alkaline anyway it didn't damage it much. And the cush factor was definitely worth it.
