Bead Seat -- Is ceramic worth the price?
I've talked to a few people that have really good things to say about bead seats, especially to help with cooling in hot weather. I'm ready to pull the trigger on getting one for the Wee.
On one MC podcast I listen to, the host strongly recommended getting one with ceramic beads, but didn't really give any details as to why. Checking out Amazon, I see you can get a model with wood beads for around $11, while a similarly sized ceramic model is $70.
I'm all for buying quality when it's warranted, but it's hard for me to justify paying 6-7 times more in this case. Can anyone convince me otherwise?
If it's a good day to wash the bike, it's a better day to ride the bike.
