I'm currently using this seat.
And spent about 6 months with a seat called the Spongy Wonder from Canada. (That was not such a good design).
Here are some quick thoughts:
- these seats require some trial and error in adjustment for the greatest amount of comfort (I like a slight tilt forward);
- if you have grown up riding a bicycle, guiding it by applying pressure with the insides of your thighs against the nose of the seat becomes second nature ... a control option which is lost when the seat has no nose. Vertical control is all done with your arms.
The Comfort Seat has not been a "revelation". But it's been a good value for me.
Eventually the whole issue of weight on my Truly Sensitive Areas will be moot. I'll need to move to a recumbent, anyway, to solve the problems with my elbows and wrists not being able to handle the weight involved in riding a traditional frame.
