Yes, and it was the result of a similar situation... seat more forward than old setup. I had a friend (physical therapist & biker) watch me ride. He said that my pedal stoke was too long and that my hips were rocking too much. Hence, lowering the seat less than 1/4 inch solved my problem. I thought this strange, but did the old "place your heel on the pedal and pedal backwards... if your hips rock, then the seat is too high" test. Lo and behold... my hips did rock! This may or may not help your situation, but it doesn't cost much to try it out. If it doesn't work, see if you can find a rehab or physical therapist that rides and ask that person. They really are trained to see things in how the body operates that most of us don't see. Good luck.
