Suggestions Needed: Raising Seat Height Empty
PostSubject: Suggestions Needed: Raising Seat Height   Suggestions Needed: Raising Seat Height Icon_minitime1Tue Aug 08, 2023 8:07 pm

I am 6’4 and having a hard time getting comfortable on the GRiSO. I have lowered the pegs which has greatly improved the situation, but still wish I sat a bit higher and further back on the bike.

Any suggestions for mods that don’t involve replacing the seat? For example, experience with seat cushions?

If you have replaced the seat for more height, which one did you go with?

Appreciate everyone’s help.

Some people have installed a Stelvio shock absorber for other reason but it appears to lift a bit the seating.

See here under links:

Hi,

As anyone ever modified the stock seat to raise the height a bit?
I mean something like having a first layer of a high density material (to avoid getting to compressed by the weight) covered by a second layer of softer material, and, of course, a new seat cover.
I tried to simulate in the picture below. I don't like much the looks of it, but I sure could use a bit more seat height...

Yes, my GRiSO has had the original seat foam replaced with a thicker memory type foam. It raises the seat up slightly, like in your mock-up picture.

Hi JC,
Looks great in your bike 👍
Was there a noticeable improvement in terms of confort/leg room?

Thanks, but it was done by the previous owner. I never rode my bike in standard form Laughing

I've sat on a standard GRiSO and yes, mine feels more comfortable for me (being 6'1"). The pegs are lower, the seat foam feels plusher/deeper. I also have the Onur bar risers fitted too.
