    Seat angle/levelness

    Hi--

    I have a naive question about seat angles. In the olden days when I had a Peugeot and a Brooks saddle, you could adjust the saddle angle by these grooved round things. You could also move the saddle forward and backwards, and of course up and down. My new bicycle (a specialized tricross) has a clamp that clamps over the 2 rails on the saddle. You can adjust forwards and backwards, but not the tilt/angle. Just wondering if I'm missing something!

    Thanks.

    Even the cheapest clamps allow some sort of angle adjustment; can you send a pic?

    My Tarmac has opposing screws to adjust seat angle. Tightening the front and loosening the rear will lower the nose, and vice versa. Maybe you have something similar.
    It's better to burn out than fade away...or slip out of your pedal and face plant on the side of the road!!!
