on July 23, 2016
My husband and I bought bikes, after 2 rides on the original stock schwinn seat our butts were killing us! I did some research and found the no pressure seat by Schwinn. I read all the reviews and even asked a question to see if this seat would be good for us. I purchased 2 seats.
Unfortunately, it would not work on my husbands bike (Schwinn DSB) this seat post does not taper and the seat attachment was too small to put on his post.
My bike (same bike in womens) fit perfectly. My first mile I was feeling like I was putting all my weight on my handle bars, also the seat hits you were your leg should bend by your butt. Felt very un-natural. It was heaven if I was just coasting but once I had to peddle it made me work 2x as hard. The first 3 miles I had to keep stopping to lower the seat or make it higher trying to find anything that would make it better. My arms were on fire as all my weight was pushed against the handle bars.
Now it's time to turn around and go back home. I just couldn't do it. We took the post with seat attached right off both bikes and switched so my husband could test it out and i had the normal stock seat. My ride home was HEAVEN on the stock seat compared to the no pressure seat. He had to keep stopping to adjust and said he could really feel it in his arms and shoulders.
So we decided to return it. I can not recommend this to anyone. (sorry) I really wanted to love this seat but it just did not work for us.
