top and it is sooooooo comfortable.

A Torker LX saddle is the same. UDC has those.

Re: Miyata saddles?


in about 2002 it said they won't be available till 2003. each year it
goes up by one...don't expect them to be available anytime soon. get a
Torker LX instead, they're just the same, only not as pretty.

Re: Miyata saddles?


I guess Miyata don't have much interest in the US unicycle market and
are in no rush to sell them over here.

It could be they could be trying to fix the flaws in the saddle from
when they moved production from Japan to China. Since Torker are made
in China too, I would think the Torker saddle is very similar.

If you are really desperate you can try and buy them direct from
'Japan' (http://tinyurl.com/q849h)3200 yen is $27.50 but shipping
might be expensive.

IMHO the only good thing about them was they were quite lightweight, I
broke two quite fast before I bought carbon-fiber bases for them. I
guess Japanese kids are quite small and lightweight and only do indoor
riding so they don't need to be too strong.

How much does he want for the foam?

That would be a way better idea then using cut-down foam for my cf
seatbase (like I'm doing now)--I need a new piece either of the miyata
or the kh.

Re: Miyata saddles?


Send him an email info@bedfordunicycles.ca. It can't be much because if
the miyata is just like the torker lx then it is just the stuff they
put under carpets.
