> And wouldn't this be solved by pushing the saddle back on the rails? You've got a small amount of rearward adjustment on most saddle rails if your STA is too steep. The problem is that with your weight focused on the rear of the saddle if you slam the clamp to the front of the rails you will bend then break them.  So if the STA is really close to what you want sure you can adjust that last bit to hit perfection by moving the saddle rearward. If you need a significant amount of rearward movement you really need to get a dropper with a setback head. 9.8 is currently the only quality dropper that I'd recommend with 1" of setback. Interestingly if the STA isn't steep enough you can move the saddle all the way forward on the rails since your weight is now right above the clamp and you aren't putting that force through a long lever.
