A Specialized round seatpost with a side clamp works pretty well in this regard. I think they used to come on some of the Tarmac SL6 models that didn’t have the D-shaped post. I use one flipped 180deg to get a 20mm forward offset for the occasional TT. As mrmatthew mentioned, a TT specific saddle could get your pelvis further forwards too, and reduce discomfort.
Thanks for the feedback. I’m not gonna do anything against the “manual” of the canyon seatpost. Loadcase on the seatpost is around 80kg. I have the redshift installed but was looking for other options.
Context: This if for commuting where, in my opinion, less resistance matters. Starting easy with the road bike, the weather is nice. Eventually another bike will be involved. Weather sort of matters, but it was mostly for the joy of writing.
On colder days getting enough food in during the day was a learning point.
Sadly in term of vibrations and laptop reliability there is no better place.
A few months ago before settling for a full remote job I bought a pocket laptop from GPD that could fit in a framebag. Obviously screen being roughly the size of an ipad mini you definitely want to use it on external display 95% of the time and only use it as a laptop occasionnally.
Maybe I’ll try this in the future. I tried this first as I had the feeling I wanted to be more above the pedals. I noticed an unconscious sliding forward on my saddle.
Underbody is happy with the positive (logic tells me it should be negative) setback.
I went with option (1) and got a ffwd post on ebay. Decided I liked it, so then went with option (3) and had a frame made with a steeper seat tube angle so I could run a normal post that isn’t f- ugly.
