  1. Hey people, I need to get my bike seat redone due to a small hole in the back of it (thats another story) :(
    I got to decide whether I spend the extra $$ and get the leather or just go the vinyl. To me they both look as good as each other, so I'm thinking maybe the vinyl. :?
    Has anybody had experience with both types and if so which was better.
    Is leather all that it's cracked up to be?
    I've only ever had bikes with vinyl seats

    What are the pros and cons?

  2. Leather wil die in the sun and weather very quickly, vinyl tough and durable, but less horny.

    Regards, Andrew.
  3. Agreed.

    And leather will absorb water when raining. I'd go with a vinyl.
  4. go leather. covered in glad wrap :)

    it's just like safe sex.
  5. Or better still why not cover it in latex rubber :p

    reminds me of a girl I once new Grrrrrrrrrrrr
