    Default ADR approved fixed back seats

    I bought a velo milano brand new but its far too big, unsupportive and far too leant back to be comfortable for more then 30 mins driving. Considering a GP90 but pretty annoyed I have to buy another brand new seat from the same manufacturer. its also worth noting that velos are a massive pain in the ass to mount because the mounting holes are on the bottom of the seat. Has anyone sat in both a milano and a Gp90? are there any other brands with genuine ADR approval im overlooking that isnt cheap nasty shit?

    fixed backs can be, though you would probably get done for the rails or for no access to the rear

    I have an old GP90 that I bought second hand that had been used a little if at all. It was a tight fit for me when I first got it but it is comfortable now, I guess you get a groove like a thong or in bed... It mounts from the side too, although the seat already had a rail when I bought it which made installing straight forward.
