Everyone is different. Only you know what works for you. When I got my custom Laam, it felt funny at first. Then, after I used it for a week and returned to my normal riding position and posture on the new seat, it was heaven. I donít need a custom seat to ride for 4-8 hours. After that, I miss my Laam, and badly. I will order another one when I wear this one out. My aerostich gear and my Laam seat are the most expensive things Iíve bought, excluding helmets, to support my heavy riding habit. Iíd spend every penny I spent with aerostich and Laam again in a heartbeat. Ride 1,000 miles and then decide whether your gear is good.

It's difficult to glean much from people's views of things like seat and riding gear unless they are riding the way you want to.

For example ... It's perfectly possible that the Laam seat is all anyone might need for a 500-mile ride. By most riding standards that is a long way, and further than the majority of riders ever go. My issue is that I want to know how it compares after 1000 or 1500 miles. I want to know what I'll likely feel like after 30 hours stopping only for gas, bonuses and the odd burger (that I can eat while riding).

There are very few riders doing that kind of thing because most of them are smarter than me. On the other hand, I tried every cheap solution known to man before springing for the Russell, and I know that on that seat, the only thing that doesn't hurt is my butt.

I'm the last one to suggest others buy what I have. It's fugly and expensive, but it's about buying the right tool for the job, and that's not always easy to find in comparative reviews.
