I'm trying to stick to the "If it aint broke, don't replace it."

But man I hate the dam seat. Seriously what were they thinking? Why not just a plaIn black seat

i hate seat post combos. they have a funny shape. i also hate patterns. look into a shadow slim or fat seat, FBM Heart seat(like my bike. check out my bike check) or a fiend seat.
