Makes sense. Why were bike seats designed with noses in the first place?

I doubt you can control a bike as well with a noseless saddle. you actually do some steering and stabilizing of the bike with your thighs.

I think a good cutout or grooved saddle works just fine.

Agreed. Check the other forums. There are two others with something similar already.

The control and fore-aft balance are what concern me. I've not tried a noseless saddle, though.
