So it was winter and we still hadnt found a seat we liked. They all looked too flimsy, too uncomfortable, too upright, etc etc Then one day the cycling gods rewarded us. It was a lovely february day, still , bright and quite warm. I'd taken my wife to see a bike a seat in our local town bike shop to show her why i didnt fancy it. Anyway they didnt have it in, but they did have a brand new one from Hamax. It was part of the hamax plus system.
We took one look at it and thought yep thats the one. Why? Two reasons:
-Its Big! I mean really, really substantial.
-It reclines and the reclining works.
-Its well sprung (theres a massive spring at the back)
-It has a recess at the back to allow the rear of the helmet to sit.
Basically it looked safe and comfy. It looked like a seat that Mike could sit in for long weekend rides together.
We took one look at it, took it home, put it on the Dawes Sardar and stuck Michael in it. Did he like it..., i'll let the piccy tell you the story...
