I've been doing some testing again .... (i know i know)
What I find is slack seat angles (the actual angle of the tube rather than virtual angles that use lay back seat posts) ride a lot softer. Ive also experimented with other things like tyre size, seatpost diameter, frame material, how thin/solid the seat stays are etc by understanding simple mechanical equations, slack seat tubes transmit less force to your butt plus you are sitting at an angle which makes you spring rather than take a more fuller blow

cheers thats an amazing observation... only kidding with ya!
Relaxed seat angles like on trail bikes puts more weight on rear contact point, i thinks thats why despite the softer ride I've gone a lot of bent rail saddles :))
