Ive never had that problem, it might be because I have it set so that unless I lean back a little I dont have any pressure on it. On a trip, I will lean back and rest on it but it is for not permanently against my back all the time that Im riding.
My wife can sew and has a machine. She took a black terry cloth bath towel, cut pattern out to overlap edges a couple of inches. Then folded edge over and sewed a draw string channel all the around with a little gap at bottom to pull and tie string.
Works great and just take off when washing bike or it needs washing itself.
Hey team, thanks for all the replies and great ideas. I will check into the Hartco cover, sheepskin, beads, and terry cloth cover. For you guys/gals that have the beads, were did you buy them, or did you have to modify something else (ie, seat beads), and if you did how did you go about it. Thanks again for the ideas. :thumbup:
I've never had that problem, but then I always wear a mesh jacket in summer weather and it keeps it ventilated back there. Walmart sells a bead cover for cages that can be custom fit to just about everything with a little fishing line (I'd use braided so the knots are easier).
