Winter Project: Solo Wide Seat

For the longest time I've wanted a Solo Wide Seat but the ones I could find weren't what I wanted & usually cost around $400 - 500. So I figured I have 3 months til next years riding so why not try to make my own.

Researching seat pan shapes I figured I could make a pan to fit my AirHawk seat cushion. I started out making a template for the overall shape and went from there. So far I have cut out the seat from a sheet of 16 gauge steel sheet. I started shaping and hammering out the beginning form.

Season Finale

A week before Thanksgiving and this weekend was sunny & 65. I rode about 100 miles yesterday & today.

Cold wet weather is predicted for the next week. I'll keep the Sporty ready to ride because there will always be a random warm day to head out for a ride.

Short Season is Here...

For the most part I've been riding to work when it's clear. The ride in is nice but the ride home is pretty chilly. Luckily I don't live far from work so by the time the cold starts to sink in I'm home.
