Yes, another seat question
Just got a new gel seat off egg-bay. P/N A9700246. Is there a break-in period for these? Because my butt feels like its broken after a 20mile trip, I mean no give; kinda like a 2X6 board. Looking at the original packing, it was manufactured 11/2014. I had the stock ironing board seat previously along with an Airhawk. It was better than just the stock on longer trips and quite comfortable. Just pushing my hand on both gel vs. non-gel the flat stock one was 'softer'. Now with this new one, w/o airhawk (which I thought would be just as good) I feel like my arms are reaching for the grips. This new gel is not flat, but slightly wave like as it rises towards the back. I don't know if I should just send it back and go back to what I had or give a bit more time.
