Ooooooo....like the seat for the SE.

.....Buuuuuuut. Don't like the water trough down the center, that would get old really fast around here.

Wounder if the seat is a little lower than stock.

I second the water concerns. If I had that around here the trough would be full of water more than it was dry. Maybe it has drain holes like my Aire Lynx.....

Back in the late 80's my dad and I rode bicycles in a couple 150 mi. plus fundraiser trips and he had issues with his prostate. After the first year, he bought himself a bike saddle which looks almost just like that Saddleman Seat.

Interesting looking seat, looks like it would be comfortable for 2uping.

What happens to the water that'll collect in the trough? Look forward to hearing some real world reviews.

Good idea but it simply needs a way to drain water that a) will drain while riding b) won't shoot a jet of hot air to the crotch and c) drain either won't clog with dirt/mud and/or is easy to clear on the road.

As with most new seat ideas the pressure points will suit some and not others. I too am interested however I hate the pee pants look and feel.

Like this it looks like sitting on a reversed bum.

However i doo believe in this concept, now fill the 'tunnel' with a really soft foam and cover it as a normal seat and i think your done?

This... and maybe an option without the tie down rings. And how much lower is the low seat version?

Found this on their homepage:

http://www.saddlemen.com/store/index...72_178_700_704

Looks to me like a toilet seat
Sorry, but that is just my two cents...
