Been using the bicycle/hybrid style seat for a long time, decided to go back to round. Very sturdy, well constructed. Seat is a little firm but that is to be expected. I've used lots of thrones over the years but for the price point I keep coming back to Tama's line of First Chairs. Not cheap but not overly expensive. I play for hours at a time and this does the job. I didn't want or need anything fancy, just your basic sturdy, comfortable throne.
