    It’s amazing how much grip they give, I can’t believe I’m riding with a seat without them. I need to put a new seat cover on anyway. I’m getting the ribbed!
    Another note how hard is it to put a seat cover on and not have it look like the spackly YZ? What tools and how powerful of stapler?

    But just as with a cable clutch and a manual kicker you can still move around on the seat, it’s just a bit harder....

    Without them the fatigue factor increases tenfold. And there is no titanium! :jack

    Seat covers are more technique than anything. I’ve done many seats with just a basic Arrow manual stapler. Although a cheap basic pneumatic one is easier, a manual one gives me more control because it makes me think before I pull the lever. Make sure you have the right staples, start up front, keep the cover tight, and work in a pattern down both sides of the cover...with NO rebound.

    So as long as I take my time and hold the manual staple gun firmly against the seat pan it shouldn’t be too bad?

    I mean my current seat is in pretty good shape.....

    Yes, but should you even have a seat with the shit you ride? :photog

    And while I’m not a mountain person, this is a pretty stellar shot. If we still had a front page rotation of pics this one should be on it. Well done. :bow

    So the Scott trial goes today in Yorkshire. Really cool event loop is something like 80 miles with 60 plus sections. It's a time and observation event so nothing like hauling ass on the seatless bike all day and still riding sections. Event is over a 100 years old I'd love tew try it even though at my current fitness level I might almost die. I far as I know we have nothing like it in North America. Known as the hardest one day trial can be entered by riders from clubman tu pro's. :-):-):-)

    All my hard earned ADV cred just went down the drain. Back to being a poser. :fpalm

    Now to spray the chain with WD40 and feel the great disturbance in the ADV force.
