I have raptobike low racer, the fiberglass seat was damaged and repaired by a previous owner and while still ok I’m thinking about a replacement.
So, I don’t know what size the one on the bike is, it is reasonably comfortable the headrest sits roughly at the nape of my neck, is there a standard way of measuring seats? I am 6ft tall probably more short legs/long body guessing I want a large seat but any thoughts advice appreciated.
Thanks
Tom

Hi - I have a Raptobike. When I ordered it last spring i didn't have a clue what size seat i needed. Elan suggested for my height (5'11" in my stocking feet) a large seat is the optimum.  I certainly find it plenty comfy Hope this helps.
