    What seat to get?

    What seat should I get that will be well fitted for urban, and Dj. I have a 05 hardrock and am currently running an BG1 seat, any help?

    Thanks

    shadow slim is kinda uncomfortable if you're sitting for a long time... and you may come accross complications with the fat rails not working with your current seatpost. Fit bmx and Simple bmx also have just about the exact same seat as the shadow slim.
    macneil has a very nice line-up, but you will need the proprietary bolt on seatpost as well... another to check out is the coaltion...

    I don't know, I just don't like the fat potato seats. it's up to you if you want fat padding, or lightweight small design that doesn't get in your way.

    The cheapest one you can find that looks comfortable.

    i use a bontrager road bike saddle on my HT. got the idea from someone else a while back. sounds stupid to some people but they are comfortable, very light weight and out of the way. they actually look sick in my opinion. just a thought.

    no offense

    no offense to those who like shadow seats,but i think they are junk. i have had three of them,and all of them were cheaply put together.the fabric tears easy. i like bontrager's big earl.thats what i have now.no problems.the odyssey senior is nice too.

    I thought the exact same thing, but never said anything.... I think he just showed his knowledge on his own.... if somebody has problems with the shadow, the same thing will occur with the big earl or senior.

    check out the bargain bin at your LBS. I got me a bontrager something-or-other for 10 bucks. It doesnt really matter if youre doing DJ/park stuff, only if youre sitting on it, rolling around town for miles and miles...
