Seat Cover/Sock

I know what I'm asking for probably doesn't exist. And if it doesn't I'll find someone to make it for me. But......

Has anyone seen for sale anywhere a seat cover/sock for a bent? Something to cover the seat during the rainy weather so the foam backing doesn't get soaked? I'm tire of having my rear soaking wet for the past week.

Thanks for any input.

I have been using a trash bag. I too would like to find something better.

Here is a link from this kind of discussion from over at the Easy Racers forums.

http://www.easyracers.com/vbb/showth...ght=seat+cover

With several links & good discussion, maybe you can find a lead there?

I presume it's for your actionbent-type hardshell? Get a piece of open-mesh foam from Poweroncycling

Water just goes through it. If it gets rained on, you shake it out. If you have one of those seats with a slot down the middle, and you're having problems with wheel spray, you can put a strip of for-sale sign under the foam to block it off.

This is what I use as I don't intend on riding on a wet seat during this rainiy season.

http://www.rei.com/product/778477

It fits perfectly around the seat of my Giro and has an elastic drawstring back so it can be tightened and the wind can't blow it off. It comes in a nice little pouch so it can be carried neatly within my trunk when it is not in use.

Yeah, now this looks very promising. Thanks!
