Gidday there everyone

I am a newbie here.

I had the 2014 wee and I loved it naturally and despite the rave reviews about the seat being the best in the world, i did get saddle sore after long rides. Still it was better than my previous bike. N

I upgraded to the 2017 revamped wee and love it even more, however, this seat is worse. I am 6'1". I have heard that you can get a lift kit from a mob called SC . Has anyone done this and did it work? Or does anyone have other ideas.

Another thread suggested also "dropping ya foot pegs" How is this done?

i'm wanting to soon chuck a lap of Oz, but really need to sort out the seat issue first.

I am in Brissy BTW if anyone wee riders wanna join me :3)

Look forward to your help

welcome aboard :-)
Is it the seat itself or the riding position ? Change bars, pegs etc if it's the reach or pegs if the legs are the problem. If it's the seat, then can change it over but not really cheap. You could try a sheep skin seat pad like the ones from sheepy hollow at Brendale maybe. My wife has one and swears buy it and at $49 for a single universal or $249 for a snugfit double not that expensive. Just an idea anyway.https://www.sheepyhollow.com/common/...get/cb1300.jpg
