Best After-Market Seat for a Cypress LX

I love my LX, but I don't care for the seat. Any recommendations?

I'm 6'2" and weight 200, so I have a fairly substantive following. (smile)

Mate, I can tell you from experience that there is NO "best
seat" that will fit everybody's butt. That said, decide how
far (or how long) you want to ride at one time then try
several different seats.

There is a rule about seats that many do not know.....
"The softer/cushy the seat the sooner your butt will hurt."

This rule fools many newer or casual riders but is VERY true.

So best of luck in finding a seat that fits.......YOU!!

try a brooks leather seat. They are well known as being very comfortable and they "break in" to your butt. I have always ridden them and have always liked them.
