I had about 8 seats that didn't have brooks/yuba spaced bars before the burglar took them all. The brooks did. So that is about 12% of seats I've seen that have two parallel bars. Most of the seats had a stamped steel angle supporting the clamp.Nearly every seat has the two mounting bars under it. You just need to mount at the bars and not the seat post adapter.
I just got my Himiway and realized quickly I needed a different seat. I had recently purchased a big ass seat for my old bike and was very happy with my choice. I removed it from the post on my Gary Fisher bike and easily placed it on the Himiway “Beast” seat post. The seat is made by SURFAS. They have a 90 day comfort warranty I believe. This one was about $70 and they have different sizes and seat materials. I just went for the biggest. I’m not necessarily a big guy, I just thought, go big or go home. I think it looks great on the bike. The Himiway’s stock seat has a handle on the back, but the SURFAS seat is big and has a very deep grip, so I don’t miss not having a handle.I just got my Himiway Fat tire step thru and want to change the seat out to something bigger and more cush. Has anyone done this and can advise where or what I can buy? I have an electra Townie and the seat stem is smaller so I can use that seat which I love
You can get most of the Serfas line in either the lycra breathable cover, or a waterproof cover. The lycra is so much nicer in the hot weather as it wicks away the sweat and keeps your butt dry, but the waterproof ones are certainly nice if you ride a lot in the rain. I just use the elastic waterproof covers for those days.I did see the first one (CRS-1) at another bike shop after I bought and installed my EX-RX. I thought, that it might be even cushier and perhaps even larger? But I also think that fabric on the seat of the (CRS-1) would absorb moisture especially if it got rained on. So I have regerts in my choice.
