    Just picked up my '08 Madone last weekend and rode the first 20 miles and noticed my seat seems out of "kilter". Anyone experienceing the same thing? It's as if the nose is twisted down and to the right.

    Great bike otherwise. Intense leverage when stepping on the pedals. It just propels you forward with every rotation.

    Congratulations on your new bike!

    But seriously, every functional bike does pretty much the same thing. :D

    I noticed the same thing.

    I didn't like the seat very much, anyway. It was too flat and uncomfortable, so replaced it with the Fizik Aliante from my old bike...only to discover that the seat clamp for the Madone doesn't offer much angle adjustment. If you want to ride with the nose above or below a degree or two of tilt you're out of luck.
