Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Setback, but how far?

After riding my build for a few months, I feel I need the seat back a little farther. Problem is most seat posts don't give a setback measurement. My current post is a cheapy from the LBS. I'm considering ordering something new but don't want to spend a bunch of cash for something that doesn't get me anywhere (literally).

Here's the current set up...

I like the looks of the MICHE Supertype (Black) and the Nitto Crystal Fellow. Will this get me farther back?

Don't want to go this far...Nitto Wayback

Any advice?
