    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.

    You're an idiot - read before jumping to conclusions. I followed the link from a news article in a science magazine. If it's spam what is LiveScience advertising?

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