Bicycle Seat Adaptation for Monster

Nice experiment! But you really need one of these seats not specifically designed to castrate you. Just looking at this thing hurts. Get a nice, soft and feathered, big and comfortable butt fondler:efeeb35c09: not this mountain bike/race bike crap.

Also, seems like your street has been infested by more oversized McMansions.

Yes, I'm looking for a big padded seat that has a compatible undercarriage. 

Can't stop the constant encroachment of bigger and bigger houses. It's good for my property value though :)

Do you have an old rubber garden hose or rubber mat?  I wonder whether a section or couple of sections split open might work.  If two are needed, maybe try overlapping the two C shapes.  The rubber would be more durable.  I am a little concerned about the pressure exerted on the handle though.  The Gotway seat looks like it distributes the sitting pressure over a broad area.  Clamping directly to the handle and applying all the pressure on it might lead to the handle breaking?

I wonder whether a future design could see the pedal supports extended up higher with mounting points at the top.  That way a two bar attachment could slide into it with a seat connector at the top.  It could be designed to extend for height and be adjustable for front/back/angle positions.

Good ideas. Right now I'm experimenting with dense foam.

I think if the hard edges of the seat are cushioned from the handle, it won't break. I got this idea from Facebook, and he hasn't experienced any problems.

My handle is already broken from an earlier fall, so I'm not overly worried about breaking a pristine wheel (which mine is not).

Thanks.

Love that expression :D 

That's a common expression in the United States for when somebody buys an old house, tears it down, and replaces it with a huge house that doesn't fit the character of the existing neighborhood. Very common it parts of California right now (I'm sure other places too).

It's not a new word, but she popularized it lately with this blog. Ignore the "serious" posts if you like. Recommendation: read chronologically from the start.

Also, it refers not simply to too big and unfitting houses, but also cheaply built and designed pure architectural and constructural (is that a word?) trash. The blog explains it well (read chronologically, it's much funnier this way).

Yeah I was aware of it. The fast food equivalent of big houses. Justed wanted to state I like the expression :)

I like my butt to be fondled so I wrapped a double layer of soft Yoga mat around my Gotway seat.

I rode 42 miles sitting down last week with NO ass pain at all, so comfy!

Does that little bike seat begin to hurt after awhile or?

That small seat is horrible. This was my first try. I'm now looking for a thick/fat seat to try.

Your mod looks good, and probably prevents the seat from splitting like I see it happen on other guys wheels.
