Either my saddle doesn't work for me or there is a lot about adjustment that I don't know. Well, actually the 2nd proposition is true in any case.
I seem to have a choice between close to debilitating abrasion and compression forward after 2 hours with the nose tipped up a notch past level or, at level or below, I can't stay on the dam*** thing. I keep sliding forward, it keeps constant arm pressure and attention to keep off the nose. Is there some magic combination between height, tilt and front/back that will do it. The height and front/back adjustments are done with my understanding of leg angle and extension.
Or is this something that will only be cured with a different saddle.
I'm about 6 months into my 3rd year of riding and since buying my 1st road bike Feb of last year, I've never gotten the saddle just right. The saddle that I'm using now came off my previous bike, a flat bar road bike but with a somewhat more vertical riding position. I put more than 5000 miles on that bike/saddle combination without any notice of a problem. So my best guess is that it may be related to the more rotated forward riding position.
