    After a considerable length of time and thought, I decided to buy a fully functioning, Claude Butler, light weight framed, 21 geared, fully functional bike with a brand new, (professionally fitted) rear tube and tyre from Funster Sheriff.

    He accepted my old bike in part exchange (he agreed to dispose of it for me) and charged me two jars of Marmite (thanks, Norman and Sue).

    Two days later, I found out that, prior to the sale, he had transferred the super comfortable, padded saddle cover to his new bike, leaving the really hard saddle on mine.

    What are my rights under that new sales law?

    Perhaps he removed the padded saddle cover for hygiene reasons?

    I would never argue with a Sheriff especially that beggar, he has the right to take the law into his own hands.

    Be careful JJ, be very careful.

    Anyway you are the proud owner of more personal padding than Sheriff Big John, so just park yer Arris and stop moaning.

    Maybe you should just get "your people" to lean on them a touch!

    Could they have been the two jars we doctored? :)

    I would sit on it for a while before doing anything drastic.

    Ripped off mate..

    Not all is lost though..
    Cover the saddle with a nice bit of fur caught locally.. Catch about 10 of 'em skin 'em ( cook up the meat so no waste ), tan the skins and sew them together for a SUPER comfy seat cover

    Oh.. forgot ..

    Here is a picture of the animals I am talking about..

    AS I SEE IT: Probably none: He changed the saddle on advice from others that you wouldn't need it:
    Basically as you are a Tight Ar$e anyway :xrofl:

    I would work on the principle he assumed you wouldn't need the padded saddle as you already had sufficient built in!:whistle:

    It was probably a girlie saddle with the shape to comfort them. A Claude Butler Must have a hard saddle, It massages the piles back into place, especially on Belgian Pave.
