The Sargent I can go about a half day before it begins to get uncomfortable and it's no where near as bad. It seems to sit a little lower. I think I'll ride it for a while then get a RDL or Mayer made. The whole custom seat process is a hassle when you live out east.
+1 What he said. Except I'm not sure about the RDL or Mayer. I recently had my stock seat done by Mean City Cycles in Maiden, NC near Hickory. So far on a couple short trips it feels great. Real test will have to wait a couple months. It was a double decker of memory foam and I described exactly what I wanted to accomplish. This is how they describe it:
"This modification was developed for the larger rider in mind but light weight riders are loving it also. In this modification we start by reshaping the seat for better comfort then add a 1 inch piece of 10 lb memory foam then we add a 5.5 lb 2 inch memory foam. This gives the seat a super plush feel. This modification keeps the sitting position is a near stock height but we can still move you back, forward or up." I drove up and had it done but you can do it by mail. $150 plus any shipping.
