Yeh, but that said, we all know that reviews in mags can be biased and not completely independent. If it was that good there would be loads in the market place as this option is quite cheap to make.
I reckon that the only way this type of seat might work is to have it high so that you're almost standing and riding it jockey style with a low slung kidney back support.
