Ken, I'm not familiar with that particular seat, but I've used some of the seats with the hole in the middle for less stress on the tender bits. What sort of bike riding are you doing? I've heard Trek is making a new line of mt. bikes sized for women, but (while I like my Trek road bike and its the closest to an off-the-rack fit I could hope for) I had bad luck with their hybrid about five years ago. What are you riding?

We have a couple older 10-speeds and my daughter has a 20" The seat on mine is a bit uncomfortable. I've been looking at a SHIMANO Mountain Bike. I bought the wife a Pirelli Seat for hers she really like it.

Right now it's to hot to ride. WE try to ride some in late fall and during the winter months. I'm overweight so riding is more a chore than joy.

Ah, but Ken, if you ride enough, the weight will take care of itself! LOL! I know what you mean, I'm in the same boat. Get to be over 40 and the body's just not as forgiving as it once was. I'd like a mt. bike, but I'm short waisted and long-legged, so last I looked (four or five years ago) there wasn't a snowball's chance of finding something to fit off the rack. Even for a woman, I'm short-waisted, so most off the rack mt bikes don't come close to fitting me. I'm 5'2" but have a 31" inseam. My son is 5'9" and has a 32" inseam. So if I get something close to fitting my upper body, my knees are hitting my chin, and if I get it to fit in the leg, I can't reach the handlebars.

No question of riding my skinny tire bike on the gravel/dirt back roads. I haven't ridden since I got out here.

Yes, I've been using an EasySeat for over a year and have learned to love it.
