    agreed. i rock the hotseat. the rails tend to bend rather easily though. but it feels great for freeride/urban/dj stuff. tends to make the chode sore on long trail rides hough.

    My votes for the hot seat, that love seat is gigantic! Just curious, why'd you narrow your options down to those two?

    i ride the love seat, it is very comfortale for when i am sitting down. though when i downhill or freeride i dont sit much. its nice becuase its extra paddign for the balls so when u smash the nads u dont loose em. downside is it is big and on a dj bike it would probly be out of place, on a dh bike it feels just right to me. if i were u i would get the hot seat for ur djumpign needs the love seat is to big for ur purpose
    Looking for a 7.87 x 2.25mm shock, any brand any age that runs well!! cheap would be appreciated!

    If you are open to suggestions, go WTB, like the other guys have said. I'm riding on a WTB Lazer V Pro and I like it a lot.

    Baloney, SMT! You're not an ounce over 275...LOL! I like the Love Seat on very technical trails. I don't like it on trails where you do a lot of seated pedaling. And by that I don't mean that it's not comfortable to sit on. It's just that because of its size, your legs will chafe some if you're XC'ing on the thing. I've been amazed how you can stay seated more in fairly rough terrain on this saddle...more like you do on a motorcycle seat. It's also way more comfortable to slide up and sit on the nose on technical climbs. And unlike SMT, I'm only 250lbs.......not!

    Mcneil seat and seatpost combo, no need to buy mega marked up MTB stuff just make sure they make your size.
