    BMX seat on a road bike?

    I'm curious, can you fit a bmx seat on a road bike? They just have more color options for way less money? Is there anything I need to know before taking this on?

    You may be able to do that. However, many BMX seats have larger diameter seat rails that may not work with a roadbike seatpost well.
    Also, keep in mind many BMX seats are not designed for sitting on for any distance/long length of time. They tend to not be the most comfortable.

    What wds178 said about comfort is true for some seats, but I've had a bunch of different BMX seats that were plenty comfortable for long distances. Definitely make sure the rails are the proper size though.

    Been done before:



    Suede '80s BMX saddle. Very comfortable in its present use on the Trek, although I do believe I could do just a bit better tilting the nose down just a tad.
