    With the Corbin seat - do you think you're sitting lower or higher than on OEM seat?

    I'd have to say slightly lower due to the concave design of the seat.  It's more of a contoured shape you sit in vs on.

    Thanks, I was hoping it would be slightly higher or at least the same as oem, since I'm a tall guy...  :002:

    You can ask them to make the seat higher. That said, outside of America, Corbin are really expensive.

    That's a good idea, but do you think this is possible?
    Well, I will try to contact them and ask...

    Of course, itís only adding more foam to the seat. Given that they make them from start to finish, they can make them whatever height/shape they want. The genuine tall seat is 25mm taller, but you could ask for 50mm if you wanted a bit more. Lots of seats have this option.

    I agree that it's worth giving them a call.  Their customer service is great, and I'm sure they will make your seat to your specs.

    I forgot to mention that part of the online ordering process includes questions about your weight and inseam measurements, so there is already a bit of tailoring built into the proccess.
