Since nobody has said it, the Scott Wallis base set up is amazing. A
work of art! Light, strong, responsive. I just got my second one
today that I am putting on my Coker. Photos of the seat build to come.

I just got my second base from Scott yesterday. I agree they are
amazing and worth the price.

This is what Scott told me about the shape:

I don't know how that rumor got started. My bases will never be as
curved as the current KH base. I am making changes to make my bases
and other parts more easily interchangeable with KH parts, and I guess
somebody thought that meant changing the shape.



His new ones aren't ready yet so the one I got was just like the old
ones. I don't think he is officially selling them again but my first
one keeps cracking in the back because it was originally Evan's and he
didn't ride it with a bumper. Scott has been really nice and helpful
about it and actually fixed it for me for free once. I didn't mind
buying a new one because now it won't crack in the back and my new one
is the correct hole pattern. My paypal account is now empty though

i love my cf base from Scott. the only downside to it is it made my seat
a lot wider, making it harder to do unispins.

Oh yeah, I don't like how wide it gets when you put KH foam on so I
just use the top of the foam without the sides and I put vinyl tubing
and duct tape around the lip. It makes it really comfortable for
anything sif.

I have two questions about CF bases.

1. What kind of weight savings can you expect going from plastic/metal
stiffener to CF?

2. Is there some way to attach the saddle cover without having to do
the whole "fusion cover-shoe-string" thing? I don't like the feel of a
fusion cover because the cover is slipping around on the saddle and
that doesn't feel very good when doing SIF trials.
