Sargent Seat - Glee vs Wee

Hi,

I currently ride a 2011 Wee with a Sargent seat. I have owned and ridden many other bikes and configurations, but due to medical issues, a Wee with a Sargent seems to be the only configuration that I can tolerate without pain.
If you've never seen a Wee Sargent seat, it is quite wide - verging on cruiser width. It is quite a generously proportioned seat!

I am thinking that if I ever do wear out my Wee it would be a Glee I would upgrade to...IF the Sargent seat was basically the same. Has anyone got a Sargent seat on a Glee who can measure the width at it's widest part? Are the Sargent seats comparable between Wee and Glee?

No. They are not comparable.

My sargent seat on my 2014 DL650 is definitely roomier and more supportive than the stock seat.

It is 15 1/2 inches across the seam at the widest point, measured horizontally eyeballing it down to the inside of the piping.

Best figure in the cost of a new seat if/when you upgrade. Do you have Adventuretechs footpeg lowering kit?

I measure 15" widest part on my Sargent on my '13 glee. you might inquire at Sargent re your concerns. Their site may have dimensions/variations/custom stuff available. They made changes to a seat for me.

Whatever you do don't get the low Sargent it is in no way comparable I miss my Wee Sargent so much my Glee came with a Sargent low on it and it's way better than stock but not even close to the stock height Sargent in comfort.
