Jason Cole has kindly agreed for his hip pad and footrest modifications to be included on Unsponsored.

Extended Hip Pads

I added a couple of 10x12x6cm blocks of PE foam to bolster the hip pads, and found a use for the old bungees (attached to the bottom of the seat) to retain them in place.

This is the front pillar. I cut some of the foam out to allow me to sit about 1cm further forward.


Thigh Braces

I added a couple of strips of self-adhesive foam to make the thigh grips more comfortable and grippy. Finished off with Jaffa tape.

Jason has also provided an excellent backrest replacement guide for the site.
