(Dutch: zie /ligfiets gedeelte)
For my m5 28-20, I needed a new seat as the old wooden one was coming apart. I was lucky to find a second hand one online for 50 Euros, but it was just the hard plastic part, so I needed a seat cushion. The one solution everyone was raving about was the Ventisit. So I bought one. Happy as a cyclist can be.
You can leave it on your bike, rain or no rain.
The rain drips through rapidly. Even after a heavy rain shower, the seat is virtually dry (provided you drilled a hole in the bottom of the seat!)
It is comfortable (I took the 3cm thick version instead of the 2cm thick version).
It feels “solid”. There’s no sideways movement, so it doesn’t affect your driving (apart from being nice and comfy).
It ventilates very well. It made a lot of difference with my previous seat cushions!
So when I re-instated my flevobike (that still had an old seat cushion), the first thing I did was order a ventisit (and a new tire for my back wheel). Ventisit: well worth the money!
