Hi dude

not sure where you're from but if you've just bought a new bike, then it's worth sending the seat off to a professional  Seat Upholsterer  like the one in the link.


Taking a Stanley yourself to a new bike seat won't do much for its looks or comfort tbh :wink:

Hope you get it sorted and ride safe.

Dealer

find a nice dealer and most of them will have a relationship with an upholsterer - this isn't an uncommon problem and often an inch can be taken off quite easily.
