Gel saddle for trail-a-bike for a kid?
My 3.5 y.o. is finally big enough to ride the TAB (I'm selling Bobike Maxi on Craigslist now
The distance to/from his school is 5 miles (let's say about 30 minutes). He likes the TAB a lot, but complains "my butt hurts when we go over the bumps".
He's probably not going to develop "iron butt", as I can pick him up from school two times a week at most
The seat there is whatever seat came with Adams TAB, some padding, but not too much.
He's still little short for reaching the pedals, so I don't want to add a suspension saddle post, as most of them add extra 1-2 inches to the minimum saddle height.
I'm thinking about Serfas Kids' Gel Saddle: http://www.rei.com/product/752076/se...ids-gel-saddle
Any experience with gel saddles for kids? Any other advice?
