Hey guys,

So I just bought the JvB solo seat and found it to be very very hard. Anyone any experience with how better it becomes or if it stays that way? If it does, I'll return it and built my own next time.

Cheers

It softens up a bit. Probably never be a seat you want to spend hours at a time in, but it does become a little more compliant. For around town it's fine. I did a weekend ride of 450 miles and grew tired of how hard it was.

If you want the JvB rear fender it's the way to go. I may eventually take it to an upholstery shop to have it reworked so it's more comfortable.
