Cycle Canada?

Excellent comparison between the custom made and stocker.

Looking forward to a review after the seat is broken in. Also, curious how the suede will be with respect to mobility. If you could comment on the wider width and how it impacts the off-road stance.

Do you do reviews for Cycle Canada??? Job well done.

XPC off road

I'm far from a real off roader but am going on a little ride Saturday AM. When I'm stopped I'm more on my tippy toes than with the stocker for sure. 32" inseam.

No affiliation with Cycle Canada but it is one of my favorite scoot mags.

300$ plus you have to send them a seat. Turnaround of about 2 weeks.

Worked in video back in the day before I became a stay at home Dad. Actually it was all done with stills.

Yes, but the production value is great. Even though you started with stills, you created a video from them!

I work in audio post production. Sound design for film and tv.

Video /Audio

Sound has always my weak point. Seems that way with most people in video. I'll send you my next clip for a proper mix!

So for you guys that have an XPC with a suede cover... how's it looking for the suede wanting to pull away from the seat like Renazco claims? I know he's not using suede because he "couldn't make it work right," but I am really liking XPC for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is that he will do suede. And from the pictures I see, XPC is turning out a beautiful looking seat. So what gives? Does XPC have some secret pattern that fixes the problem? Is there a problem at all? This is pretty much the last thing I want to straighten out before I send my seat in to XPC.
