i'd have to do more than just take the foam pieces off i think. the two bars would probably need to be wider. as they are now my back wouldn't really be on the mesh, it would be resting on the two bars the mesh would attatch to. the two bars would likely be against the blades of my back.

since no ride has been more then a few minutes, maybe 5 or so at most, i plan to stay with the foam bars. the real test will be a longer ride to see if and/or how long it takes for them to become uncomfortable.

I recently saw a freak bike with an office chair pneumatic chamber/piston height adjuster, modified as a sort of dropper post 😂🤣😂
