I know riding on the rivet (creeping forwards on the saddle when really laying the hammer down) is not uncommon. I found myself doing this all the time in vo2 or more intense intervals as well as in the final stages of a ramp test. However ever since making some for adjustments including shortening my cockpit and reach, I’ve noticed I can stay put anchored on the widest part of my saddle even for anaerobic efforts. I’ve tried moving forwards and not sure if I am getting any power benefit whilst losing some sitbone contact with the saddle.
Do people use this strategy of moving forwards on the saddle to get that last bit of power perhaps at the very end of a ramp test when you feel like you are starting to fade? Or if set correctly, is staying anchored the most ideal for seated power production even at the highest intensity?
