I got home from work last night little past 10 PM and my seat was waiting for me. It was raining this morning so I couldn't (didn't want to) try it out right away. I went to the garage in flat sandles, installed the seat, and sat on it. Winner! Still overcast when it was time to leave for work but I had to try it. With my Redwings, 1.5 inch heels, I am solidly flat footed with bent knees. I'm loving it. It feels like I'm sitting in a bucket seat.
