    For The Independent Cyclist: A Website To Show You the Path To Independence

    http://www.instructables.com/id/How-...-bicycle-seat/

    Or Add Leather Covering:

    Here is an good example of a Website to assist people to live more independently from the grid. I selected this example above as a very popular concern of once you found the perfect saddle, you might get to keep it forever. Don't miss the rest of the huge free instruction offerings there too. This is just one example.

    I have a Brooks saddle. It may not last forever, but it should get me pretty close!

    I also live independently from the grid.

    However, as good as my Brooks saddle is, I'm not sure that it is assisting me in living independently from the grid.

    There's an even better instructable -- very detailed -- on this topic.
    http://www.instructables.com/id/How-...-bicycle-seat/

    I used it a while back to recover a couple of really sad looking saddles for the local bike coop. Now this instructable recommends you used marine vinyl and I bought a yard of it at the local fabric shop. It also uses some pretty heavy 3M glue, too, although certainly much the same as is in most original saddle covers these days.

    I really like the Instructables web site. There are a number of them I've used to repurpose old equipment or material and make something useful.
