Saddletweaking

Has anyone whom has replaced their saddle cover also re-shaped the foam? I would like to de-hump the passenger hump to even things out so bum can move more freely.

To me the sweet spot to sit on extends into the ‘hump’, especially when hunkering down a bit.

Anyone have any experience with this? And using gel inserts?

Replaced the original Stradale seat with a Rivale seat.
'cause the original Stradale seat like the TV seat is a proper PITA.

Moving up and down the Rivale seat quickly rumpled the cover.
18 stones tamed the hump for good.

Stopped by the local saddle maker.

He did the refit and restaple of the seat on the spot
in about half an hour and asked 20€.

Easy and cheap but better done with experience and the right tools.

That would’ve made the title of this thread ‘Seattweaking’.
Really, that just doesn’t sound right!
