I like this seat MUCH better than the standard issue. I have an adult tricycle & I am about 220 lbs. I ride, very comfortably, every evening about 3-4 miles. I am happy with this seat & would recommend, especially to the larger riders.

I haven't been able to ride a bike since my mid 30's because of tail bone pain. Husband purchased e-zip scooters and I had limited rides from pain, I really couldn't tolerate the scooter seat I tried that was 11inches and square either. I got this big seat that my husband thinks looks bad and it solved all my problems. My response to hubby's complaints about appearance, "have babies and we'll talk." I love the seat and for the first time in 14 years, I can ride without pain. I am going to put it on my bike and try bike riding again. This is a life changing product for me.

this seat can't go unnoticed. It's like nothing else Ive seen or ridden. I ride 4 miles a day on this seat for 3 weeks now. All it need's is some spring support or a little give. It's a cruzer seat for sure. The seat cradles your pelvis. there's an option for gel support pad I'm looking into. I ride a stiff tail with no suspension.Once positioned the seat stays in place. The clip that holds it is partial to one side. This could be a problem for heavier rider's. making the seat TILT. left or right. I'm 185. so far it's not a problem after a year it may lean a little. but it's held in place by bolt's so it's pretty heavy duty. The seats covered in a water resistant rubber leaving it in the rain wont affect it. There is little padding if any it's a stiff ride. (my bike has NO suspention) I have a electra townie. is just needs springs. the seat itself is great.The way it attaches to the seat post needs a better design for more comfort. It's a tank of a seat ,Heavy duty.

I was hesitant to order this seat because of the price, but let me tell you-it's worth every penny!It's a tank of a seat-very heavy duty and mostly comfortable. I ordered it with the gel cover, and I intend to order the sheepskin cover also. I have fibromyalgia, so I have a very very low tolerance to painful stimuli. I have a brand new Specialized Sport Low Entry bike and suffered with the stock comfort seat that came with it. I even bought gel-padded bike shorts, and switched out the original seat for a bigger one. I tried to "get use to it" all, but I was still in pain, and thought I would have to sell the bike. Then I found this wonderful seat and took the plunge and bought it. I was able to ride yesterday for an hour and a half with short 5-6 minute standing brakes. I tilted the front of the seat downward as it was hitting the back of my thighs, and although I still feel some discomfort there it is a vast improvement! You don't need to be overweight, or a "whus" to appreciate this seat! ( I am 5'7", 155lbs, with wide hips-a size 12)

The seat is a good seat as far as I can tell But! the adjustment forwards and backwards is very limited in that back is too much and forward is too much. need another setting

I bought this for a stationary bike and it is wonderful. On my old seat I could only ride for 10-12 min. before my butt was sore, and that was with a gel pad. The first time on this new seat I was able to ride 25 min. and could have gone longer. And I'm a big guy - about 350 lbs.

I purchased this seat to replace the uncomfortable seat that came with my exercise bike. After installing this seat using the 3-Hole Adaptor Kit I was able to ride my exercise bike for long periods of time. The seat is excellent and is made of high quality leather.

I purchased this seat for my exercycle as I found the original seat too narrow and uncomfortable. It fit well on the exercycle and the wide back was comfortable. What I didn't expect was how wide the front of the seat is. It forced me to spread my legs so far apart that it was uncomfortable to pedal. The width of this front part is not depicted in the photo or in the description. I ultimately ended up returning the product.

This seat is how a seat should fit your bottom. Back in the late forties and the early fifties Schwinn bicycles came with a seat that fit your bottom. Seats make your ride. Basic essentials are long forgotten if you want speed which older people do not crave. This seat is expensive but will worth the cost if you want comfort when riding your bicycle for pleasure.

My wife has been on a seat search for awhile. She found this seat. I ordered it for her and she is very happy now. Be sure to tighten it SUPER tight using a socket wrench. I did and it works great, no more wobble.

I liked the seat real well , but I keep sliding off of it , I will need to get a cover for it, but other than that it is so comfy , I really love it, thanks so much

Great bicycle seat for my stationary bicycle. I can now exercise in comfort. Easy assembly. Just the seat I've been looking for. Shipping was the only negative. It took almost 2 weeks for my seat to arrive. Still 5 stars for the bicycle seat.

This is a lot more comfortable than the usual trike seat that is very cutting and uncomfortable over time. I usually ride trike to exercise my dog, from 2 to 6 miles, and the usual seats can get very painful after awhile. This one is very comfortable, and can sit comfortably on trike when stopped to chat with folks or while dog does his duty. Big improvement over the skinny seats. I''m a big girl so this is a big plus.

Installed the contour seat on a Macargi Rover 7 speed. Much better seat than the original seat. I can now ride for an hour or more at the time. I am 6' tall and weigh 235.

This is much better than trying to use one of the normal bike seats. You can sit upright and ride comfortably for quite awhile.
by: Eileen Philips from UT on 3/4/2014
This is a great replacement better than the original one I had. Also the gel pad you can buy additionally is a nice option.
by: ocskates from FL on 1/10/2014
I love the seat, it was very easy to install and adjust. It is a huge difference from the factory installed seat on my Schwinn meridian trike. I rode two miles first day out on it and decided to order one for the wife's trike as well.

To put it simply.....I LOVE IT!
by: Linda from Florida on 3/26/2018
Wow what comfort from a regular seat. this seat lets me ride in comfort I'm 75 and don't have much padding . this seat lets me ride in comfort on long rides. Service and quality to match thanks for looking out for us old folks who want to be active.

I need to start exercising and this seat helped me do that!! It's great to feel like your butt is actually supported .
by: Carrie from NC on 2/28/2018
The seat is well manufactured and sturdy. I used the adapter to install it on a stationary bike and it fit well and was easy to install.

Great seat, very comfortable, no longer hurt when I ride my Pelaton.
by: Karen from Tyler Texas on 12/21/2017
The wide seat is great for this 69 year old farm boy. I have mounted it on a Adult Schwinn 26" Trike and it makes it very enjoyable to ride. I am 6' 1" at 330 lbs. and I need no brace that is sometimes used with this seat. I have tilted the seat back so that I do not slide forward while riding. Make sure you get the nut and bolt secured tight. I kid about the seat being built for a wide load.

Have already taken three bike trips, all over 15 miles each and my butt was not sore afterwards!!!!
It could use more adjustment notches.
by: Ann from Pennsylvania on 7/11/2017
I have a standing desk and decided to purchase a stationary bicycle so I can actually exercise WHILE I work. The seat that came with the bike was awful. I found the tractor seat with the sheepskin cover and have been able to bike over 4 hours of each workday. It's AMAZING and very comfortable since it distributes my weight across a larger surface. I highly, strongly recommend this bike seat AND the customer service team has been great to work with. First class outfit!

BIG,WIDE EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE SEAT.ANY RIDER OVERAGE FIFTY SHOLD BUY.ABSOLUTLY THE BEST PRODUCT ON THE MARKET AND CERTAINLY WORTH THE COST.
by: JAMES caffy from tenn on 6/19/2017
Although larger than a usual seat which took some getting used to, this has been an answer to a prayer! Finally, a seat that's comfortable! It doesn't cause welts, or bumps or irritations of any kind. I'm a full figured gal who can stop traffic if I bend over to tie my shoelace; this seat accommodates me perfectly! Thank you so much!! I'm looking forward to cycling through summer!

just what the doctor ordered .Perfect fit, very comfortable.
by: bill from los angeles on 2/22/2017
This seat overcomes the irritation and stress experienced from a G6 or other seats when riding longer distances. I typically get a six mile ride at one sitting and this seat is my friend when I am finished. At first the extra width created a strange feeling at the hips but after several days riding was unnoticeable. Highly recommemded.
by: Lee Bennett from Naples on 2/2/2017
This seat is absolutely amazing! I can ride 10 miles and never even have to readjust to get comfortable! Best seat ever!
