CDN Tire gel cushion

Canadian Tire has a "gel" cushion currently on sale for $9.99. It's about 1" thick but compresses down to about half the thickness. It's more a squishy rubber then it is a gel, but for $10....

Tried one last year. Couldn't get comfy on it. Tried trimming it to fit but had no way to strap it down. Tossed it.

Use *in* your seat

I used mine *inside* my seat. Cut out a patch of foam about 4" x 6" (if memory serves) and put in some of that gel material. It's still not perfect, but it's pretty good for all but the longest rides.
