I received my Ultimate midrider saddle with backrest night before last, quickly installed it and took a 250 mile ride yesterday morning. The seat felt great although it put me slightly higher off the ground, but my back started hurting after about 100 miles and after 250 I felt like I had been kidney punched for an hour by Rocky Balboa! I could tell I was farther away from the bars but their website mentions nothing about being farther back than the original seat. A quick phone call this morning confirmed my suspicions, the midrider puts you back 1" farther! I love the seat, but have now had to order handlebar risers.
