    Can anyone tell me what are all the causes of sliding forward on your saddle?

    I know that saddle angle is one of them... Can I try changing anything else?

    Thanks in advance..... You guys are awesome!!!!!

    Could be that the stem length is too long, causing your upper body to be stretched out, and your fix is to slide forward.

    Check your saddle tilt. Get a carpenter's level and place it on top of the saddle. The bubble should be in the middle or close to the line in the middle of the view to indicate it is level. Or a more accurate way is to get a protractor and a sturdy, straight ruler. Put the ruler on top of the saddle and on top of the ruler is the protractor. Make sure that the bike on a level ground before measuring. Good luck!
