JUst wondering how far behind the BB the tip of the saddle has to be?

I'm at 6cm with a 180mm crank.

I mean no offense by this... You seem to be obsessed with the UCI saddle position rules. Or at least you're overly concerned by them. However, I haven't seen a post from you that suggests it would effect you... which is to say that I don't recall you stating that you raced. This is nothing against you. However, I'm wondering why you care what the UCI says in such a case? Why not just ride the position that works for you? Are you looking to get into racing and concerned that you may have to adjust your position? Or is it more of a curiosity thing?

I have to agree with Kuon on this. Just find a comfortable position and go with it. Nobody's going to care unless you're tearing up the Pro-1 races.

But to answer you question it's a min of 5cm so you should be fine. And here's the link to the equipment rules for future ref.

5CM is super forward.

I thought mine was really forward at 6cm.
