Thanks for the response above. I tried the chair experiment and now get the idea. I will try out your method on the bike.

The reference to Lemond above is interesting. I was listening to a Velonews Fasttalk podcast a little while back with Andy Pruitt, I think. He told a story about Lemond, who recommended to Ron Keifel (of the 7-11 squad back in the day) that he move his saddle all the way back. At the time, Lemond had adopted this position at the recommendation of his coaches and found that he felt more comfortable and had much greater power. Keifel followed this advice, then spent several months having to rehab his hamstrings.

Pruitt commented that Lemond had very long femurs. Keifel not so much, apparently. [Insert Pruitt chuckle here.]
