Thanks rat fink. I had never heard of Cobb saddles. A quick look reminds me of the Terry fly in shape. John Cobb is a pretty prolific and articulate guy and sure has a nice website. Of all his fit principles, I find his idea on saddle rotation left or right as it relates to pelvis tilt interesting. Have you experimented with this? It may play into the idea that there is no such thing as a symmetric pelvis...nor do we sit perfectly square on the bike...or...perhaps relief for rotating the pelvis forward. In any event, I have never heard it stated before. Have a look below and let me know if you have played around with this. I will likely give it a try.
