hi i find that the toughest part of unicycling is enduring the pain that my seat inflicts on my behind.
anyone have any suggestions on how to make my seat more comfortable (my seat is made of rubber...almost entirely).

or should i buy a new seat...if so what kind...myata, or viscount, or semcycle, or something else???

i have three seats:
a cheap,taiwan made seat
a great for distance ridin,semcycle seat with a bicycle tire inner tube inflated inside
a very lightweight miyata seat also with inner tube for comfort


if you like to jump-get a miyata
if you like doing long distance rides-get a semcycle
if you like pain-get the one made in taiwan!

very good!

it depends on how long the ride is. on a 100 mile journey somewhere i would use a semcycle seat with a 12" bicycle inner tube stuffed inside it. anything less than that id go for miyata because it is light,somewhat strong,and very well designed. i use a miyata on my 20"er and a semcycle on my 26".
