I was just wondering how comfy that seat is on the 3rd bike down that has no nose on it? Ive seen those in stores and wonder if they are worth it?
Thanks!


It's alright, It's comfortable it just takes some getting used to. Since there in no nose you can't grip it with your legs. You just have to balance your butt on top of it. I didn't realize how much you steer with your body/butt until I tried this seat. Bought it for the trike at first but my GF liked the other one better.

No, I bought it from a guy off of CL for $40. It was an old beat up lower rider when I got it. Although the guy I bought it from said his neighbor built the rear end in his garage. I've been trying to find more rear ends like that. So far all I can find are chromed out lower rider rear ends or this one for $299.

But the price seems a little hefty!
