Adjusting a Fizik Saddle on its Rails

I am stumped. I am trying to move my Fizik Aliante saddle backwards on its rails. I have extracted the two bolts that appear to hold the rails to the top of the seat post. However, at least with the application of a moderate amount of pressue, nothing moves.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks

I had the same problem with my Fzik Poggio. For the life of me, I can't remember how I solved that problem. I do remember it involved an extra set of hands to get the bolts back on track.

waat? you can move the saddle itself back on its rails? cool!

or are you talking about the seatpost? you have a tricked out bike, but I cant remember if you had a use alien post on it. from what I've heard, a mallet is necessary to move the saddle on those things...

I do have an USE Alien seat post and you are right that I'm trying to move the position of the seat on the seatpost - I deserved that and probably more.

A mallet? You'd think there would be an easier way. Thanks.
