    Saddle Project...

    So I went and cut off the sides of the saddle (Soft Nylon). What type of cushion should I use to pad it and what type of fabric should I cover it with?

    try riding it without any padding, you may find you don't need it.

    I recently covered an older immitation leather saddle I found with some wool- houndstooth- worked out pretty well- just staple the loose ends underneath with a staple gun.-*** you can do it with any fabric**

    I take it the staples don't poke through the outside?

    Why am I having visions of Martha Stewart in this thread?



    And today we will learn how to recover that old bike saddle with a fabric design to show off your personality and creative flair... blah blah blah....
