“I'm really happy with my seat. It’s got a great shape and old-style look. It works perfect for me.”
Mike Aitken is a name synonymous with style. Is the Aitken Saddle popular because he rides it, or does he ride it because it has good style? Either way it is a popular size/shape. Lightweight frame, durable top with the good looks of vinyl, but much more durable. Old school embossed diamond pattern is all Mike. Others may bite his style, but Mike is used to that. People try but no one can duplicate it. His Nightwolf saddle is the same great seat with his signature Nightwolf by Rich Hirsch (Lotek).
You have to use a seat or you are one step closer to riding a scooter. There are many seats out there, and in Odyssey’s 25 years we have seat designs change dramatically, but almost come back to where they started back then. Plastic seats were popular in the early days because they were cheap, and BMX bikes were considered cheap. You don’t sit on a BMX seat that much, so it made sense. We have seen padded seats come into play, seatposts get super high, and seats get huge. In 2010 they are slammed lower than ever and even back to non padded versions. What goes around comes around.
