OK, so I know this is a much discussed topic and opinions on which is best / worst are always going to be subjective because we are all different.
BUT, has anyone tried to resculptore the seat foam themselves ??
I went out for my first ride of the year yesterday and after about 100 miles things were getting noticeably uncomfortable. I think I have worked out, that the problem for me, is where the seat foam starts to widen / flatten out and has a much more distinct edge.
I know I can send it off to Tony Archer or a plethora of other seat guru's but who's to say that after paying for their services things will be any better. So my thought's are to remove the seat cover and re-shape the seat foam, very gradually, until I find what I think may be the solution. I have done this on my off-road bike very successfully and I don't really see why it wouldn't work in this situation. Worse case scenario is I cock it up all together and then have to pay someone to put it right, but nothing lost in trying.
So I'd be interested in anyone else's attempt at the same thing, success or failure.
