Saddle Fore-Aft Positioning - Not KOPS(1 post)

Saddle Fore-Aft Positioning - Not KOPSSpectre
Jun 2, 2001 10:56 AM
I heard a theory on saddle positioning that I had not heard before. The theory was that the saddle fore-aft position that feels most natural is the one at which the rider's torso is best balanced over the pedals. This allows the rider to generate maximum power & feel balanced on the bike. For example, a rider with a short torso will benefit from a more forward saddle position, whereas a rider with a long torso will feel that a position in which their saddle is pushed back is more natural.

Any thoughts on this?
