Bought a wood beaded seat in May at the RA National and after returning from a 4,000 mi. ride, I still can't believe how much it improved the comfort during medium to long days in the saddle. Put it on a K75 with a new bike, no cost option, Corbin Dual Canyon seat. I've seen beaded seats forever and always wondered if or how they could be comfortable.
It was only $35, which to me is a reasonably priced gamble. It turned out to be a nice improvement. Would have bought 2 more at the MOA National but I didn't see any there. Seems like all the folks who already had them knew how nice the were and forgot to tell me, or I wasn't listening. I should have bought one years ago.
