Aren't Mums great!
Im sure its wouldnt have cost that much for a proffesional to bodge up really. The most time she spent was cutting the material into sizes the rest was just over killing on the stiching so it wouldnt break as im a heavy bugger.
The inflated dimensions are Breadth 27.5cm, Length 37.5cm, Depth 3.5cm. But as i said before when fully inflated doesnt seem to work as well as if raisers you too far off the bike and you loss the feeling of being on a bike at all so corners are a bit more scary.
I also understand you can buy many other cheaper inflating seats like this but most all have square corners which cause problems as these mean square corners in covers. And squares corners cause problems by poking people, being pulled easily etc etc (cant really explain this one but i know what i mean) Also the other ones i looked at are really just big air pockets where as this has a proper internal structure with some sort of material inner which means its more stable once you sit on it. Very like the big sleeping mats they make.
