Default Air Seat Conversion?


It seems that the most popular air seat conversion is the miyata
conversion, Anyway....

The Black Torker's Saddle has been described as "Miyata Style." So i was
wondering if the very same miyata conversion can be used on that saddle?

Default Air Seat Conversion?


Ever since i started distance riding, i realized that i too need an air
saddle. I have a torker unistar black and was wondering if that can be
converted, or if i need to buy a real miyata seat.

Greetings,

I have both a Miyata air saddle and a KH Velo. The Velo is extremely
close to the comfort of an air saddle and doesn't suffer from the handle
tearing issue of the Miyatas. I have a KH Velo because it came with
KH24 and I really like it. Depending on the price you might want to get
a KH Velo instead.

(Just my two cents...)


Cheers,
Jason

Is there a difference in a KH saddle and a KH Velo saddle. Or are we
talking about the same puppy here? --chirokid--

Yes;

We have done two Torker saddle air-seat conversions, it works pretty
much the same way as the Miyata (done one of those too). The only thing
I don't like about those Torker saddles is the handles are weak. We've
ended up replacing them with the ones you can buy on Unicycle.com.
