Okay, before ppl start telling me to use the “search function”, I already tried, and can’t find what I’m looking for. All I want to know is how to build my carbon fiber seat!!! I’ve got the seat base (2 of them, I’m building 2 seats), the covers, and i guess i’ll use the KH handles off my 2 old busted KH seats. I need to know
- What bolts/nuts etc… do I use, because I feel the ones of the KH seat are too weak??? Is this true, what are ppls experiences in the past?
- My carbon fiber seat doesn’t have any holes in it yet, it has markings, but no holes. Can I just use a normal drill set, or, as my dad wondered, should I use a diamond tipped set or something similar.
- What should I use as padding? The stuff from my old KH seats, or a 12" bike tube, and if I use the bike tube, where should I and is there a need to put a hole to allow the valve to come out?
- Any other tips? I’m not starting to build it till tomorrow, my budget is about $50 (AUS) if I need anything extra, so any suggestions are good suggestions! (Except for some Area 51 high-tech laser drill or something silly like that).
Thanks for any help, and if you do find an old thread that helps, then I’m sorry for wasting your times, and I’ll happily use the old information :p.
