Generally for folders you can forget about optimum.
They generally set up for sit up and beg.
But you can :
Set the bars as low as they will go (if adjustable).
Set the seat as far back as it will go.
Set the seat height correctly.
Add bar ends.
My bike with the above the bars are too close for optimum, but work
with the comfort saddle (no shorts) up to about 20 miles per day.
After that going up to say 30 miles I get post riding saddle discomfort,
but none at all doing 15 miles a day in normal clothing, YMMV.
Great saddle at the price for commuting and lowish mileage day
to day. Rubber sprung and stress relief in that central area.
Not good IMO for a touring holiday, though YMMV.
Day to day usage though, excellent.
Miles better than my folders standard saddle.
