I have decided to get a Diamond seat made for myself and my SO. So many people on this and other boards have said how great this seat is and the people who make them are commited to excellence. I do have a question that some of you may be able to answer. I live in the nortwest and ride year round so I find myself riding in the rain more often than I would like. My question, would it be better to get a vinyl seat covering or should I go ahead and get the velour? Most folks seem to have gotten the velour. Does it hold up to the rain pretty well without getting soaked? Thanks in advance of your info.
