    Default Shoddy fit on F3 Corbin Seat?

    Greetings Spyder Lovers!

    I just installed the Corbin Dual Tour Saddle on my '16 F3-S and was wondering if anyone else was experiencing unsightly body gaps between the saddle and the rest of the trike?

    The saddle is quite comfortable, but doesn't seem to sit flush again the body. I double and triple-checked and it is indeed locked in. An annoyance, to be certain, but if this is the norm with this saddle, I guess I can live with it.

    See below for a couple of pictures. Thanks.

    Russ

    Default Not sure....

    Hope there are others out there that can compare with the pictures you sent. Doesn't look to bad but if others have a more flush fit then it may have to be redone...

    Unfortunately its pretty typical of Corbin's shoddy workmanship. Been discussed over and over. Far better companies to do business with.

    I was fortunate that they told me off BEFORE I purchased and moved on to Russel Day Long Saddles.

    Copy that. The seat is actually quite comfortable, so I can't complain about that...just the fitment on the trike itself.

    Oh well, live and learn, I guess. Thanks for the feedback!
