Clay did a nice job with the seat, using Dave's tube bender to get the right curves in the ¾ stainless steel tubes (some surprisingly tight). But he may experiment with different webbing material to get the ideal strength for his size. With a rear suspension he couldn't use conventional seat bracing tubes, so it has triangulating strips of webbing from the back to the bottom instead. These are also likely to be inadequate, since the grommets show early signs of pulling out, so he plans to replace them with aircraft cable.
