    I'm 5'5", and have a Fat Bob. I like the Le Pera Bare Bones, but I needed to be closer to the handlebars than I could get with the standard version, so I bought a Le Pera Bare Bones Up-Front seat. Unfortunately, the back of the seat pushes into my tailbone, which makes it uncomfortable.

    I'm looking for an alternative low-profile, narrow seat that doesn't scoot me quite so far up as the Up-Front.

    The Danny Gray Speedcradle seems to fit the bill, but I can't find one locally to look at.

    Has anyone had any experience with this seat? Can anyone compare it to the Bare Bones Up-Front?

    Thanks for your help.

    Where is your location? I have a Danny Gray solo seat I use on my Fat Bob. I live ten miles or so from their Santa Ana, CA factory. Before I bought the seat, I rode over to them and had them set a blank of the seat they eventually built for me on the bike to test fit. Worked out well.

    I'm in South Florida -- but you'd never know it tonight. It's supposed to go down to 28 degrees...
