getting seats done ( Va. )

Does any body know a local shop that does seats?
hampton roads- Richmond area

I had my stock seat done at spencers and I didn't like it to much
found a sargent one and it's ok

so I'm looking for a good place to go check out, hell it will make a good ride if I have to come up Richmond way

I have rode a few seats they have built / rebuilt. With and without gel inserts. The first seat of theirs I climbed on was over ten years ago, so they ain't 'zackly new kids on the block. Further from you than you had requested, however, it may be worth a few more miles to get custom work done to your specs. They seem to know how a seat should fit a butt. They did have a pretty good inventory of goods on hand to choose from, knew the right questions to ask regarding ride style, and the last Sargent seat we had rebuilt cost about what the freight expense was to a seat wizard in California.
