seats eh? well if you want a nice seat firm seat get one from SDG. There're a bit pricey but well worth the money. A great seat at a great price (16.99 give or take a dollar) that I use own one of my bikes is the Odyssey Pro w/ kevlay back seats. Its quite soft and is narrow enough so it keeps out of your way when your pedaling.
The mountain bike SDG seats are expensive, but they're SDG BMX seat is also another seat to look at. It's about 30 bucks. Have fun and go ride! oh yea get these seats at a good price at www.danscomp.com These are BMX race seats.

yup looks like your entire bike is stock. So I don't want to reccommend any parts that might not work on your new frame, cause I know you want to buy a full suspension frame So don't get new forks or stem, but get some nice new Shimano XTR V-Brakes. They will improve your stopping power tremedously and have a much smoother feel. The XTR are expensive and are a matted grey/black color(which looks really sweet), but if you want to save some dough, go with just the XT brakes. They work just as well and are just a lil heavier w/ a matte silver finish to them. Both have paralle pad systems so the pad will always contact the rim evenly for superior stopping power! Have fun and go ride.

porky, I changed my mind on the duel suspension, I'm gonna keep riding the ole' hard tail until I get a whole new bike. Or until I bend this frame.

Hmmm maby I should start a mountain biking/bmx forum in the chat lounge.

Porky, those seats are really thin and long man. It would definatly take me a bit to get used to them. Do u know if those Shimano brakes would fit my bike?
