Stock Vs Sargent (Round 2)

Well, ‘comfier’ the Sargent seat may well be, but after a couple of rides I quickly realised I don’t like the riding position it puts you in – up high and towards the back of the bike. It feels like you’re perched up there on top, meanwhile the bike has a life of its own beneath you.

So…I went out and bought a stock seat instead. No where near as comfortable, but (for me at least) it gives a greater feeling of control. It makes me feel part of the bike.

The fat Sargent was ruinin’ my nice clean lines anyways ;) Now appearing on eBay!
