what about shimming the saddle higher on the left side to balance her
Yep, have several things to try. I have had many good
suggestions...also talked to Arlo at Skito, who suggested some
shimming, or attaching ties to the back of the pad so I could tie it
to the back dees in my saddle. This would anchor the pad fore and
aft. I must say, their concern for good customer service is *very*
I'll be trying some of these different suggestions this weekend.
Thanks to you and EVERYONE for all your excellent input.....RideCamp is GREAT!!
Will let you know how the "one rat" tests go : )
Hilary....sometimes love isn't enough....shim away, Mom.
