I wasn't able to push the seat far enough forward.
I'm running the tip of the saddle 3.2cm behind the center of the BB.



That's very far forward - not normal, IME.

I'm OK w/ abnormal. It was the result of a Retul/Guru fit I had done earlier this year. It was double checked by the shop through which I purchased the EVO. Both fitters are pretty accomplished guys.

Saddle distance right now is about 7.6 ~ Some days I feel like it could go back a bit more. Saddle to bar drop is right at 11. I did order a shorter stem this week that should be here this week. Taking some needed rest from the bike this week, so I will have time to hopefully get it and put it on for a ride to see how it feels.

Other than that, my position is just an over the years work toward what I know I can train and race on with speed, power and some comfort. When I say some comfort, I could go for more comfort in exchange for the power and speed, but right now I am good with this set up going up to 5 or more hours and it actually gets to feeling better once I do get into that range.

Saddle tip to CL of bars is 57cm.

No, I do not hit the bars and it actually allows me to sit over the BB more and pull on the bars. I also have a 1cm shorter stem coming to see how that feels, because there are times where I feel I could do better with a little shorter reach. That may come down to picking a different bar if the tops are too close with the change of stem, but I like my classic bend, so I may just have to live wit it.

CAAD10 Force Racing 2013. I have had a long relationship with Cannondale and will continue as long as they will let me. I like the bikes and I have fond memories from earlier in my cycling adventure.

The things we changed are the cockpit (3T), saddle (San Marco Regale Racing team edition), and the race wheels (Mavic Cosmic Carbone SLR Clinchers)
