Speaking as a tall person. I need steep seat angles **_and_** longer chainstays. I've always fitted zero offset saddles and pushed the seat forward to get into the pedalling position I like, even on flat ground. I still have the saddle as far forward as I can safely put it on my 75-76 effective bikes. The short saddle pictured on the TT bike is designed to "hang-two" so when you're bent over in the aero bars you're not crushing your sex organs or restricting blood flow to them. Triathletes having been using short saddles for a long time. They spend a long time planted on the saddle.
