how to make the stock f4i seat comfortable for $1
The f4i is a very comfortable bike except for the hard ass seat. i went to a store and bought a small piece of medium-density foam (it was a leftover from a much larger piece, they sell the leftovers for really cheap)...1 inch in thickness. I cut it out a little smaller than the stock seat. I took off the seat and unstapled the vinyl covering using needlenose pliers. Then put the foam on and put the vinyl over it. Use a staple gun to re-staple the vinyl cover over the new foam AND original hard seat foam (which you don't remove). You might want someone to help you pull the vinyl tight as you staple...if you do it correctly you won't have any creases or wrinkles. Bolt back on and BAM, you have a very comfortable seat that looks stock. I rode for 200+ miles today and I was comfortable the whole time, including my ass! Screw Corbin, this only costs you $1 and about 30 minutes of your time.

good information indeed. I thought about doing this same modification. I've got the Corbin seat, but I generally ride with the stock seat on unless I'm doing a MAJOR ride. I'm gonna do this mod and see how it goes :thumbup:
