Does anybody use a zero off-set seat post on their Epic. The nose or front portion of the seat on my 2009 Epic falls a little behind my sit bones with the stock 3/4" off set seat post. It feels like I'm sitting on the center of the seat where the nose and wide seat pads come together instead of planting my seat bones on the seat pads. Also I feel too stretched out, like I'm reaching for the handle bars.
Yes, I do. I ride a 2009 Marathon Carbon and have found that, for the riding that I do (fast XC), I need to be further forward on the bike. The standard setup on the non-S-Works bikes is more of a "trail tune" setup, which doesn't work for me. I'm 181cm, ride a Large, and use a 100mm Specialized Carbon (road) stem.
After a fair amount of thought, I ditched the off-set post and went with the Specialized S-Works post. That improved things, and so I went the whole way with a Next SL post. I like the setup. I'm still looking for a slightly more forward position, but am pretty happy with the current setup.
