This was actually the original arrangement. However, I couldn’t think of a way
to do this without interfering with the grip position used for all
seat-out-in-front moves, where you grip the side of the seat and your fingers
wrap into the area that would be covered with lacing.
I was just at a big trade show in Las Vegas (Interbike), and the owner of Velo
(one of the biggest bike saddle manufactures in the world) has agreed to make a
new prototype uni seat. We just need to send her a detailed sketch of what we
want (ideas/sketches welcom!). Do you think it might be possible to make a seat
that has a gap in the middle like some modern bike seats?
