Yea my bike came with both the stocker and a Corbin.

I'm 5'8" with a 28" inseam, and long arms and I'm quite heavy for my size 34" waist 200#
The Corbin locked me into one position on the bike, mostly comfortable riding solo, and good with my Ex-wife as passenger, but after her all the other passengers complained about the seat.

I was totally and incredible dumbfounded by the lack of quality and design in the Corbin, The vinyl lasted less then one year of year round Seattle riding.
The seat never could be made to lock to the bike. The seat is so heavy I suspect that it's made out of depleted uranium.

To top that off the customer service at Corbin is laughable, and they have been involved in shady practices with relation to Merlin motors.

After I put the stock seat back on I stopped using the Corbin.
On vacation for a spell
