Put the old foam back on with two 8cm round stacks of gel three deep under my sitting bones and a little seat scolloping . Looks happy .

Then went for another lap , reduced vibrations through the seat quite a lot but comfort after an hr still not great . And more cows on the road :mrgreen:

So now three x 15mm foam , test run another day .

Keeping an eye out for some underlay foam too ( i can see a visit to a carpet shop in my future )

Final design is 20mm gel , one layer of underlay , shaped underlay and another underlay over the top .
The shaped underlay looking front to rear is a trapezoid pointing to the rear and then a gap 70 mm to a crescent shaped piece at the rear .
So my bum and legs have somewhere to fit . The seat cover is starting to look a little second hand after so many fit and refits ( staple holes )
Also fitted handlebar risers to sit more upright . Happy with the result .
