87gerG: It sounds like your experiments with different saddle arrangements are paying off. I wonder though, when riding with the ARS saddle atop the origami, as you show here:
Side view Origami comfort saddle with Planet bike ARS saddle on top:
Does the ARS stay in place easily if you shift fore and aft or stand out of the saddle? I would worry that it might fall off.
A lot of times with the written word it is hard for me to discern sarcasm... So I'll just say that the photos of the saddles are for size comparison only, at no time did I or would I ride like pictured.
thomasw33 didn't buy the Planet bike ARS because "it looked to bulky for the bike" and having owned an Pb ARS saddle before I knew that it was about the same size as the Origami saddle.
Funny, I think they were serious.
thomasw333 I was saying that the photos were for size comparison. And the sarcasm remark was about the 2 people that posted about me riding with one saddle on top of another. So I was explaining to them the reason I took the photos like I did. I knew you didn't see it in person as it is very close to the same size as the Origami saddle.
After awhile you start to figure out who the wise guys are...
Thank you very much for the entire thread and ongoing reviews of the updates to the stock Origami Crane. I will take your advice about the cables and brake pads when it comes time to replace those.
The cold makes it harder for me to want to go riding now.
Never mind the cold, enjoy the mud.
