I sent this earlier today but it did not post. It’s the fix I cobbled together for that seat rip I showed you yesterday. It consisted of –
Zip tie. Duct tape. Fishing line. Swiss army knife leather punch
And as I chased around looking for answers, Shawn Raymond, the Godsend who helped me get on the road to Salt Lake last summer offered to help me build a new seat. A top flight experimental bike builder, he has built seats for some of his designs and says he’d be willing to see what he could do to get this problem corrected!!
