Bell GelTech Seat with AirGel
#1
Anyone have experience with this seat? Bell GelTech Seat with AirGel

Also, are most saddles universal or should I be looking for one with my specific seatpost diameter in mind? I think it is 26mm. I need something that isn't going to make me walk funny for 3 days after trail riding.

As far as the diameters http://www.sheldonbrown.com/seatpost-sizes.html is a start for ya. As for that seat I will affirm it is a nice seat and yes I have one. Very "rear end" friendly. The size on it I do believe is universal because I have had it on a Road bike and on a MTB.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

It would help to know where you are and if you are a boy or a girl :-))

Would not recommend that seat with springs that suck your pedaling energy. Its a beach cruiser seat. Unless you have a beach cruiser.

The seat rails should be able to attach to most seat posts.

Here is a saddle that made a big change for me. No more numb nuts........... :-)))

I'm a guy so numb nuts are a concern. I did not know that was a beach cruiser seat. I'll look into something else, including the link you gave.

As for the clock tower, it would be the Hill Valley clock tower, as in the movie Back to the Future. Tongue
