Tiger seat fit
« on: 19 February, 2017, 08:44:56 AM »
Something I've wondered about but have never asked :

Does the lip on the seat actually make contact with your butt.
I assume it's intended to give sacral/lumbar support but I find it quite a stretch to reach it.
Is this normal?

In my natural position my butt and back don't touch the rise in the seat. If I stretch back it does. I'd need another inch of reach on the bars to shift my neutral position rearwards enough to make it feel natural.

That said, I'm very comfortable and happy with the seat since I sent it to Spencer for his famous upgrade.

I'm 5'11" with a 31" inseam.

No.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

I don't normally contact it.  I think instead of being a back support, it is there to keep my [censored] from sliding continually rearward under the intense acceleration the Tiger is capable of  :015:

I would reach it with the stock and Russel seat.

Can you if you try, if not imagine it's a inseam issue.
You might consider a custom seat, love mine. It's god ugly to look at but my rear end is very happy.
