Single Jockey Seats

I know this has been talked about a bit, but what height (without cushion) is a jockey set? I am in the process of building a new plug (pattern) for a single unit, and then a double one to make a mould off. I have measured the height of a few different ones and heights vary quite alot between manufacturers.

Just my thoughts but I would think what is comfortable (which is surely the important thing) depends on how long your legs are?

If I was building one to use myself I'd use this as the yardstick anyway.

For me the most important thing about a seat is not the height but more the width, there is nothing worse than not being able to stand in a comfortable position. Also the wider it is the more likely your are to keep cracking the side of your knees on it!
