I made the base of my seat brown to go with the paint. The trick is finding a color of brown that compliments the paint.

Are you thinking of going with a lighter brown similar to the Indian tan brown or a darker brown? If the Indian tan brown have you put it up against your bike just to see how it looks?

Thanks Gearset
I would like to go with a darker brown but Ultimate really only has the light tan but Corbin does offer a wider choice of browns.I do have a stock tan Scout seat I could get an idea of how that shows.My first choice is saddles would be Ultimate both are hard to get at this time though with the given times.

I saw one with a very DARK brown seat (stock seat recovered and gel pads installed) and the owner said the color was called "chocolate" was very nice wish I had a photo!

The dark brown on my Corbin seat is called Otter Brown. I found it by going to their factory. They didn’t have the color listed on line.

I called Corbin when I was trying to match the colors on my bike and they offered and mailed me color samples for free.



Just a thought. The only other item is knowing if the seat will fit you. They will modify a seat’s shape by request over the phone but I was having problems finding a seat that fit me so I used their ride in service where you sit on the seat and then they modify it to your requirements. (I know it’s too far for you to ride).

In my opinion a stock Corbin seat caters to taller riders.

Pictures of them working on my seat while I waited.



You can see in the picture below by the glue line where they added foam in order to move me forward.
