I am very happy with it. It doubled the distance I was able to ride over the stock seat. Price was nice as well. My ride went from 75 miles to 120 or so before any pain set in. So then I got the Corbin Solo and went up to around 200.
Since I put the 4 inch extensions on my bike, I am guessing my seating position has changed a bit and the Corbin Solo piping started biting into my lower back. That Corbin seat comes a bit higher than most seats.
I put the Mean City Cycles seat back on. I got my 200 miles but I had to get off the bike a few times.
Keep in mind, I am a heavier guy, come in at 284. That could be the issue.
If you are thinking of Mean City Cycles upgrade, my seat has about 600 miles on it and I would be willing to sell it. Might be cheaper for you. I can put the Corbin Solo back on in the meantime.
My Mean City Seat is wrapped in Carbon Fiber. PM me if interested, I can send a picture.
I have a feeling if I was a lighter person, I would love the Mean City Cycle redux.
Most of my friends have cruisers etc... So they ride all day. So I am looking for that seat that will let a heavier guy like me be able to do that.
But whether or not you buy my Mean City Cycle Redux, that seat is very good and they do great work. My Corbin Seats are great as well.
In the end, I think it all comes down to the seat of YOUR pants... literally.
oh... and of course looks... It hard to ride comfortable AND look good. That is the real challenge for us.
