    The short explanation is, they are level. Sort of.
    The saddles are Fabric Tri. The rear of the saddle kicks up, but the front and the area my sit bones engage with is level. They just never look level in photos.
    If you set the saddle so it “looks” level the nose of the saddle will push your perineum up into your tonsils.

    Here’s my Capo. It’s a 63cm frame like my CAAD10 and the geometry is pretty similar.
    As bought it had an alloy seatpost and cheap saddle, and some 44cm anatomic bend bars (blergh) and a 110mm stem. No brakes, and 50x14 gear on some Soma cranks with an FSA chainring. The wheels are actually not bad - Velocity Escape tubular rims, Sapim race spokes, and 32h Miche Primato hi-flange hubs. They’ve got a pair of basically unused 21mm Vittoria Pista tubs glued to them which I’ve added some sealant too.
    Currently it’s been hastily set up for road riding with what I had lying around - another Fabric Tri saddle, Hylix Carbon seatpost, 130mm Kalloy Uno stem, FSA Pro Wing 42cm bars and a ratty Ultegra 6800 front brake with an interrupter lever, and Look Keo 2 Max pedals. I also changed the chainring to a 48t Miche and put a 16t Miche cog on the back making 78ish gear inches, which is okay for my local hills though maybe a 17t cog would be nice, as an 18t felt too short.
    Commuting on tubs long term is too much excitement for me so I’ll have to have a think about that.

    I’d like to change the cranks and BB also.

    Weird isn’t it? I gave the painter free reign and he has done an excellent job with a result I would never have thought of.

    😃 you lfgss guys are a friendly bunch.. no one bothers to reply on weightweenies unless you can show receipts that you’ve spent more on your bike than the GDP of a small country or had it whittled out of carbon fibre by some wisened old man in a German Forrest ..

    I’ll get some pictures of my Capo this afternoon. It’s a CAAD5 with track ends basically. I have it as bought at the minute and waiting for the funds to make it my own.
