    Erm. Dunno. Depends where it's at now and where it needs to be.
    Try it.
    More likely of getting nut ache than bach ache anyway.

    Thanks sound advice,saddle just 2 mil forward and removed headset spacer,feels like a more compact riding position but pushing on the flat stuff now No Problem,thought the 10 mil spacer would be to much but no.
    might be me but the long uphill gradients don't seem such a slog now
    awesome Many Thanks

    Double sided velcro would fix your issue.
