Has anyone tried this seat? I am very tempted by the style but am a bit worried about comfort. I have the old school seat with the spring in theme and it is pretty comfy. These?

Yeah, I saw that. Thanks. I agree with you re.: proportions by the way. I think it looks very stylish.

But my question is about comfort. Is it a tough ride or is it still comfortable, the slim profile notwithstanding?

SoCalGuy says his is comfy on my thread. I've only been able to go for a short 30 min ride with it, but no complaints. I read they are not that great for long distances. Just keep your original seat for when you know your going to be riding for a while. It's not hard to switch seats. Less than 10 mins.

Now that gap though.

Depends what you like. They’re much firmer than standard seats, no springs, just foam over a metal pan. Zero bounce. Which I happen to like. Actually prefer it on long rides.
