Good stuff Kris! I just got your KH24 last week and after a 5 miles ride
the bolts have spun themselves loose. I heard some creaking and it ended
up being just that. Nothing a little lock-tight won't fix, but I still
look forward to the 2004 seat!

I had always known the flexiness was a weakness, and had tried to jump
with mostly my legs and pull only the weight of the Unicycle up with the
handle. Mike might not have known this, or else maybe he couldn't
control himself, so he yanked for all he was worth on the NZ$90
(replacement value) seat, snapping it in half. It is still usable but
the upward flex is multiplied. I won't replace, fix, or use it because
today I put my Reeder handle on the Carbon fibre airseat. I saw a thread
in which a fix for the plateless KH seats is mentioned with the picture
(attached), but I can't remember the author or else I would quote her
(or him). This solution would probably work best as a prevention rather
than a cure for cracking.

I don't think it is a 2004 model. It was whatever unicycle.com sold me
about a month and a half ago. A 2003? So the metal plate thing in
Rowan's picture. It looks like a seatpost with the welded on reiforcing
plate? Is that what I need? Unicycle.com got 'em?

Kris, May I also suggest using cap nuts with taller caps, or shortening
the bolts for the seat mount, or some other change. Reason: on all 3 KH
seats I have used, when the nuts are tightened, the bolts push up on the
caps; and the caps (eventually) break/fall off, exposing the rather
"nasty to fingers" threads on the bolts.

duaner.
