It might be uncomfortable at first.
I'd say I have 4 'positions', 2 on saddle, 2 off.
2 are different muscle group workings, 2 crossovers.
I rotate and save for climbs.
Also, riding with your knees in contact with the toptube is not wrong.
Extreme pedal exertion, my knees will be clipping the toptube, extreme cornering, I'm forcing it with my leg.
To me, the saddle should be slightly high\low. Not the highest, the lowest correct high, compensated by the knees going inward. Sounds stupid, maybe you know what I mean.
Riding XC mtb this is an issue -as you need a little crotch clearance.
Bow-legged cyclings not going to go far, but it may be about his physique or genetic build. Some people walk that way.
I don't, but ride very 'correct', as I said, sometimes still have to get my land legs.
I might take up running as a cycling supplement.
