My Seat Sucks!
Cheap bike. Let's get that out up front.
I spent 10 years commuting on a fully suspended Mongoose IBOC I got for $109 at target. Gave it a good lube job once a year and it was an awesome bike.
I put a pair of Michelin country rocks on it, and rode it for 40 sesaons (more or less) through heat, rain, snow and whatever else.
Anyway, not long after I stopped bike commuting (too far now) it got stolen and I decided to go cheap again, and lighter and skinnier.
Ended up picking up a used Lotus 3000M for $150. No suspension, nice and light compared to what I was riding, and I threw some 1.40" Michelin city tires on it.
I love it, so fast and easy to ride after the usual used bike work.
Except, I just went out for like a 15 mile night ride and WOW does my butt hurt!
Keeping in mind that the most expensive thing about this bike is the $30 headlight, what are my options? Tell me some good cheap comfy seats!
(edit:actually the tires were way more than the headlight LOL)
