I'm planning on getting an SLR saddle. So with the saddle being so thin, did you have to adjust (raise) your seatpost a little? Hope this makes sense.

From what I have been told yes. Should basically be whatever the height difference between the two saddles are.
Measure both saddles from rail to top and raise seatpost the difference. That should get you a good basis to start fine tuning from if not right first time.

Goodluck

Even easier way to get it right. Just measure from the center of your BB to the top of your current saddle and repeat that measurment with the SLR.

Good luck,

Ride

Had to raise it a cm or 2...also fore aft was affected as well as tilt...My solution was to carry a allen wrench and adjust it a number of times midride. I think I have it pretty close now. WAY different than my Flite Gel.
