    Handcycle Seat / Cushion Help

    I think I need a better cushion for my handcycle seat.

    Me: Incomplete T10 from TM. I walk with a crutch and don't have a chair (need one but don't have one). Have not had any ski or pressure issues.

    Bike: Top End Force G with standard seat cushion. Cushion sits on a sling, not on a solid pan.

    Issue: I go for long rides, sometime 3+ hours. My boney but gets very sore.

    My cushion is about 16 inches wide and about 2" thick. I do not want to change my effective height with a different cushion as I am happy with how I have the bike adjusted.

    Should I get something like a roho to make the long rides more bearable. I can sit all day in car or office chair and not get a sore ass. If I do get something like a Roho, which type should I get? How much do they compress? Would I get a Roho that is thicker than my current cushion with the expectation it would be softer?

    I'd put on a solid seatpan and if you aren't havng any skin issues go with memory foam. Their standard cushion is not that good.

    i use a custom cut supracor sport, works great and keeps moisture away from your skin

    Thanks, that is what I did and it worked perfectly. Did over 70 miles this last weekend and no problems at all. It was a huge improvement over the standard cushion.

    and if you piss yourself it lets it go through away from your skin along w/ sweat. i used to try to stop and use my jug but now i just put an ext on w/ a short tube out my shorts leg an just go, that way i can drink as much as needed

    Sounds like you are just pissing all over the place and that is just nasty and inconsiderate of others...
