Recommended Posts

I bought this bike for my wife and I need to lower it. Anyone know of a lowering seat?

My son is fairly short too. Following a suggestion on this site here is what I did:

- remove the seat cover.

- use a pen to draw a line on the foam to reflect the desired height of the foam, tapering from the back, dipping down in the middle and tapering back up in the front.

- using my Bosch hand held grinder with a grinding wheel I ground away the foam to the line. I then rounded the edges and faired in the front and back to make if fairly smooth.

- Reinstall the stock cover nice and tight.

It worked very well. I really was surprised. Others use an electric knife to make the rough cut.

Do it outdoors as it does make a lot of dust.

It is easy and essentially free.

Another option is maybe try gutsracing.com

I think they do a lot for standard and tall seats, but it wouldn't hurt to check with them. If they don't maybe they know a company who does.

Or follow BBrown626's input. :)
