Mean city cycles?

If like to hear from those who've had their seat 'upgraded' by MCC. I've demo'd several of HD's seats and each had something uncomfortable. My main issue is tail bone pain (with the stock RGU seat). The seat height and reach is fine. Thanks for your input.

Had my done by Mean City and it's much improved over stock. No butt burn anymore. Also looks great!

I sent my seat to them, and was very pleased at the service as well as the work they did.

Just to throw in a little different opinion . ... . I had mine done by them a couple of years ago. Started out great, definite improvement. I've got 40k on the bike now, about 30k on the seat, and about a year ago I called them to see if they would rework it because it didn't seem as great any more after about 6 hours in the saddle. Surprisingly they told me to just bring it back, even though outside the warranty period and they'd rework it. I did, and it is improved, but I still get butt-sore after about 6 hours. Wife gave me an air-zeppelin for birthday, and it's great after a few hours of riding. (actually I used bubble-wrap first and that was a great improvement!).

Anyway, I think they're great. Great customer service and workmanship but for me it's not a perfect fix for long days. Might be a problem w/ my butt instead of their seat work!

Another one to consider is Astechseat.com. Did a great job on my seat and great to deal with. Just another option.
