Also like clothing, starting with some can make it fun, especially when you tear it to shreds.

For another $50 I'd include a battery, battery charger, and electrical installation to keep the seat powered.

If you just want a set height, price goes down quite a bit without the need for a gas cylinder, and design can be much more creative.
Meanwhile, China will do it for $100.

I've worn nothing but metal bracelets for the past 16 years. I have never had this hair-plucking or loudness issues you speak of.

I'm not sure Miles has worn a watch with a bracelet. I don't think I've worn a metal band that was loud, much less annoyingly loud.

I think you should give Kalim your buffer and have him go at the fit and see what happens.
