    Child stoker seat suggestions

    I'm setting up our new Da Vinci for my rather tall and skinny 6 y/o. The bike is a L/S and he is just tall enough to fit with a non-thudbusting seat post all the way down. I'm doing a bit of a saddle rotation. The captain's saddle (the selle italia DV ships as standard) I've replaced with my usual Brooks B17. The thudbuster seat post and Ldy Selle italia will stay in service for a quick swap when my wife wants to stoke. The captain's selle italia is going on my mtb and will replace my san marco bros saddle. The san marco bros saddle is quite skinny , only slightly wider than the child's saddle on my son's Trek Jet (BMX), but is sort of standard to longish adult mens length.

    1. Is the san marco, b/c of its narrowness, a reasonable choice for the boy's saddle? Is length an issue here?

    2. Can someone recommend a good kids saddle keeping in mind that we don't want to add a lot of height right now (that seems to be less of an issue daily though)?

    3. A link to a fixed discussion would be great. I searched and couldn't find one, though it seems like this should be a common issue.


    Thanks.

    My son only likes the saddle of his Specialized Allez Jr. I have to swap the seat between the bikes when we go out. It is shorter and narrower than most saddles
