i bent my viscount seat!

Post by tugboa » Thu, 14 Aug 2003 09:56:33


hello everyone. i was out unicycling the other day working on my street
riding. i got some nice grinds in on ledges and handrails, but as i was
trying to shifty-wheel grab a grass gap, i noticed that my seat was a
little flat. so i took a closer look, and i had bent down the front of
the seat base. im not quite sure how i could bend the seat cause as far
as i know, the base is made of steel or something. so i guess i just
want to know what seat i should get. comfort isnt a big issue. and i
already have a reeder handle to fit the viscount. i figure id break i
miyata, so its between the viscount and a KH i guess. any input would be
great.

thanks, kevin

WOW, that's crazy!! I woudn't think it was possible to bend a Viscount
seat. I've been abusing mine for over a year now with muni and trials. I
have a Reeder handle on mine too, so I know I put a lot of force on it.
I would just get another Viscount. I don't think there is anything
stronger out there.

There have been some threads about how the KH saddle is succeptible to
bending irregularly.  But i'm not really sure. Mine has held up ok.
Someone might help you better than me.

Not quite the same thing but I managed to crank off one of the bolts when I
was tightening my viscount seat onto the post.  I admit I probably over
muscled it but I was surprised to have it shear.  The remaining 3 bolts seem
to be holding it on sufficiently.  After a month and a half of newbie UPD
abuse the steel base has cut cleanly though the cover and plastic 'bumper'
in front (original screws holding bumpers are long gone) and working on the
back.  Duct tape keeping things fairly neat.  These days I generally manage
a much more elegant, uni catching, dismount (although still generally
unplanned :-).
