Miyata or KH

I don't know who would say Miyata is uncomfortable for seat out....I
think it's much better than the KH for that. The KH is big and bulky,
so it can be hard to pull it out of or put it back in between your legs.
The Miyata is smaller, and lighter, so it's obviously better for seat
out skills.

I have both the KH and Miyata seats.
For seat out...the Miyata all the way. The KH is very bulky and curved ;
The Miyata is designed for freestyle, and I have always found it to be
comfortable.

I havn't tried out a Miyata seat yet, but my cut-down KH Fusion seat is
perfect for seat out. And it is still plenty comfortable to sit on, if
not more comfy than it was before.

KH? Forget em--to big and brick-like.
Miyata? Forget those too--very wimpy.
There is one saddle I do recommend.
Savage. Outstanding comfort like you would not believe....


:D Just kidding!
Seriously, I have always used the KH, but already I am sitting here with
a 20" tube trying to improvise an air seat, so maybe in the long run, a
miyata-style airseat is the way to go....

So I ride a Sun 28. You gotta problem with that?

All I want out of life is to be able to ride the unicycle while smoking
a cigar at the same time. Is that too much to ask for?

I love both saddles, I have a miyata with halfair/half foam with a
stiffener plate and kinpiort for trials, and its super cushy, and
awesoem for freestyle and distance as well.
I havea Kh Fusion on my muni and it performs excellently, although I did
have to lean the saddle as far upwards as possible, to accomodate long
rides.


Both make excellent saddles and are easily customizable. Go with what
fit's your budget.

Thank you, but it was Kaycee (KacTheAcy) that helped me cut it. He did a
master job on the cutting, even with a dull bread knife.

We cut off around a 3/8" of the foam, from the middle of the foam, so
there were two cuts. We did this so the top of the seat would hold its
shape. I can take a picture of the foam that was cut out tomorrow to
give you more of an idea if that would help.

I have.. one Kh, one ONZA and one unicycle.com seat.. in other words, 3
velo seats, 2 with handles in front, and all with diferent printings on
the back..

It would be nice to have a miyata for my freestyle uni..
But i got my velo-seat for free from Peter at unicycle.se so i just
don't need a new saddle anymore, pity ;)

lleberg - Can you ride that.. thing?

If you search the forum, you'll find about a billion posts with this
general opinion:

Trials - 100% Miyata
Freestyle - 100% Miyata
Street - 80% Miyata, 20% KH
Muni - 100% KH
Commuter - 100% KH

You'll notice that the styles are in the increasing order of how much
time your ass is actually on the saddle, and the saddle preference
reflects this (Miyata = agility; KH = comfort).

Note: these results don't consider the Koxx 1 Gel saddle, which isn't
available in N. America as of yet. It seems like a perfect saddle for
street riding, and i'll be all over it when it becomes available. I
ride a Miyata on my Street uni, and a KH on my 26" Commuter uni. Both
of them are great for their purpose.
