Definite improvements for me.
Yep, me too. Night and day for me.

I don't know that there is necessarily a predictable relationship between the two as individual response to a change in either
varies significantly. If you move your cleats back 10mm, then *generally* seat height would drop somewhat because you are reducing ankle movement somewhat as well as extending the leg more. I underlined 'generally' because I've seen exceptions where a more rearward cleat position caused a change to the rider's pedalling technique to the extent that seat height could be left unchanged or on rare occasions raised.

Link: http://www.stevehoggbikefitting.com/blog/2011/09/all-about-smps/With most seats, moving the seat forward decreases measurable seat height and moving the seat backward increases measurable seat height. Typically, if you move a seat forward 3mm you have reduced seat height by 1mm and if you move a seat backward by 3mm you have increased seat height by 1mm.
