Very happy. Last time I checked, that seat was NLA. Hobson has since come out with a newer model which I tried and didn't like as much. Please note that these seats DO NOT WORK on a standard diamond frame bike. They only work on crank-forward style bikes. The reason is because the back of your thighs will be hitting the seat pads on a crank-forward bike. On a crank-forward, the pedals are set back 8 to 10 inches further away from the bottom bracket, which is what gives you the comfortable upright seated position. I once tried this seat on a Specialized Expedition (diamond frame) bike and learned of the thigh interference.

Both seats are strangely called the "Easy Seat 2". The newer version is on the left. I prefer the older version as I feel it is much more comfy.

Hope this info helps!
