I've heard that the options for repairing such tears include taking it to a leather worker and patching or stitching the tear, or replacing the seat. I would imagine that replacing the seat is more than would be worth spending, but what about stitching or patching? How much do those services usually run, and how effective are they at preventing the tear from spreading?
Here are some pictures- what do you think?
This saddle is super comfy, so I'm hoping that something can be done!
