  1. As some of you may or may not know....

    basically I'm a shortarse :oops:

    So this morning I am off to Oztrim in Ringwood to get my seat sculptered.
    Hopefully by this afternoon i can reach the ground more comfortably :woot:

    Will let you know how it goes :)

  2. Hey Flipper, I'm a shortarse too and I did my seat about a month ago. It has made a difference, but I reckon I could sculpt a bit more out of it.

    If I suffer from the dreaded numb bum then I will be redoing it with these:

  4. Being able to reach the ground is always a plus. :)

  5. Luckily the seat on the SV is really thick so I should be able to get alot taken out of it. I would rather get too much taken out then too little and then I can raise the suspension back up a bit ;)

  6. I had to do a double take on this line... I read it as you hoped to be able to do a reach-around more comfortably... :roll: Damn brain getting ahead of itself.

  8. I am about 5"4 and have had my seat shaved a little and WOW huge difference.

    Much easier than changing the suspension and then ultmately the way the bike might handle

    Cost me $50 so glad I did it
