Re: LEAST comfortable moped?

Full rigid free spirit was probably the most uncomfortable bike I ever rode (I had a 70 reed kit, boss, and 15bing on it) but so so light and nimble. but I’m rebuilding a Solex and a maxi N right now. Can’t wait for the discomfort again, gimme all of it!!!

Re: LEAST comfortable moped?

that kitkat is siiiiick. looks totally worth the pain.

tom of the swoops is a pilot and has a kitkat, i think he has flown with it or at least intended to.

I have a "7" it is pretty sketch, the seat is surprisingly good however. A good machine for well paved back neighborhood roads, would be better if I weighed less! :D But one of our civic eating potholes would total it.

A Peugeot 103 saddle seat has got to be the worst ever. There is a bar on the back edge, that digs right into your ass. As for long seats, an earlier Tomos long seat, and the Pacer P-78 Sport seats suck.

Actually , the seat itself ain't all that bad . But , the way he has it set might be a disaster .

The most uncomfortable moped I have ever ridden was the Raleigh Wisp. Not only was it uncomfortable, I always felt that I took my life in my own hands every time I rode that ped.

The fuctupest design ever, 3 wonky springs like a baby playground toy. A spring seat should have 2 springs with a front hinge to control it. Plus the ride feels like a high side in a turn.
