Jockey seat, how wide is yours?

How wide is your average jockey seat? Is there a standard width to the seat?

Or to ask the question another way. Would a 40cm wide jockey seat be too uncomfortable for most people?

Do you mean width at the base or at the top?

They do vary considerably. Ribcraft use a very narrow seat pod, which gives a lot of deck space and you don't tread over crews' feet. Osprey pods, on the other hand are very wide at the base, but you can stash more stuff in them.

Hi,
mine is 30cm wide. I think 40cm is like riding a fat horse and you geo "O legs" like old cowboys.

Why are you asking us? - we won't be sitting on it! You really should know by now what you can get your leg over comfortably.

Thanks for the replies lads, I'd forgotten about this thread.

The 40cm was at the base then tapered in.

Ah but I'm bigger than your average person. I can easily get my leg over but it's my size that's the problem.
