WTT my comfort seat for a nice comfortable low seat

Like the title says.. I'm only 5'9 and my comfort seat despite its "comfort" is too high for me. The stock seat height is perfect and for short rides its ok but to really enjoy the bike I need something thats both low AND comfortable.. Whatcha got? I'll be at work until the 13th so i'll update w pics at that point. Thanks.

Thought the cover was bound quite good to the closed cell foam, no?

^ You can peel it off, takes some time to get it cleanly off but it will work.

Have the same problem as you as well. What I did so far was take it to an upholstery shop where they shaved the foam down almost completely (thin layer left) and put the cover back on. it helped a ton in terms of getting me to flat foot/feel better on the bike. took of about ~1 inch i think.

Downside is that its super uncomfortable when I hit a bump in the ground/shitty road and hurts my balls. I'm used to it now, but still working on a solution to make it comfortable. (One option I didnt try is to buy a gel seat you can put inside but that will detract from the height loss of removing foam)

I think I need to adjust my suspension to the softest settings (I'm also super light, only ~130 lbs). Not sure how to do that though

good luck man, let me know if you figure out any solutions

I hear ya man! I crunched mu nuts several times already I thought of a couple options.. One was buying a gel pad and having the seat foam cut down and upholstered w the new pad installed but the local shop quoted too much.. Second option would be to sell my comfort seat outright and buy a Luimoto custom seat and the other is what's goin on here.. Just tryin to see if anyone has somethin they don't like that I would... The 899 seat sounds like the easiest option but it's not an even trade for my comfort seat...
