Never had an issue with either driver's side seat.
I think it's just you being a fatteh and breaking everything/everyone you sit on.

My frame has two places to mount stuff - I haven't decided which to use. I'll decide when I see how big the mount is and if mounting it above the bottom tube interferes too much with the cables. I also have to decide if I'm going to use the frame's OE plastic bolts or the supplied metal ones.

That'd be a dumb thing to do
