I have had this saddle for about 9 months now and hated it at first. I switched it to a new frame that I built up and now love it. This saddle is very subject to set-up to get the comfort out of it. Some suggestions:

1. Level- use a level and reference off of the back of one of rear splines and front saddle tip- set at level.

2. Fore Aft Adjustment- use a plumb line to get your cleat position set and then set saddle such that when you are dialed, you are parked against back splines of saddle.

3. Tob Tube-Stem Length- if you are too stretched out, you will be on the non-cut out portion of saddle and you wont like it.

Good Luck.
