    I've got San Marco Regal saddles on all my bikes and find them really comfortable, however on the bike I use for timetrials, I have the nose tipped down slightly to maintain comfort, but with effort, I feel myself slipping forwards on the saddle and I keep pushing myself back every few hundred yards.

    I'm tinkering with saddle tilt, and going to swap my seat post with one that has the fore/aft adjustment bolts, so I can fine tune.

    Also wondered if I should just move the saddle forward a cm to where I seem to be sliding to. I do have a fast forward seat post as well that does position me a lot further over the BB, but is quite extreme and doesn't look very aesthetic.

    And also wondered if one of the twin nose timetrial saddles would help to get a good stable position.

    If anybody has been down this tinkering route, would be good to hear of any successes.
    Thanks
