Not sure about this Laam seat !
Just did 550 miles in two days, the first ride on my new Laam seat. We rode the amazing "triple nickel" (Route 555) in South East Ohio, but thats another story. Total ride included about 50/50 slab and twisties and i could not ask for a better test bed.
The seat is way better than stock for sure, but its hard, and I still felt pushed forward and had pain in spots under my upper thighs. The latter may be caused by underwear seams, or seams in my new ADVsport riding pants - i need to check that out yet.
Now, I dont have a small butt, but its not large by any means. It seems there is no real wiggle room, the seat puts me in one place and im stuck there. Thats probably intentional and unavoidable, as its a short seat anyway. I have helibars that make me sit up straighter, and id really like a little more than they can give me. Im 5'10" 210lbs with 40" waist and 31" InSeam. I related all this, and more, to Seth, but i think he built a standard riding position seat. If i lean forward to assimilate the factory riding position, it feels better, but i cannot do that for long.
Im tossing up between sending it back to Seth for altering, or giving it a season to break in. Ill probably do the latter, especially if others have had the same experience.
Anyone else have a definite break-in period where this sliding forward, ball crushing feeling went away ?
