It is quite possible that your Flite has changed over the time of its use. The plastic base on the Flite is definitely known to sag. Over time the saddle will become more concave from front to back. I don't know if the base sags or if there is some stretching where the rails insert but I am a LONG time user of Flites and trust me, this happens.

You may try this but the nose of the saddle will be a pain.tortise said:I find once the S.I. Flite begins to sag there is a tendency for me to start sliding towards the belly of the sag away from the wider rear end of the saddle. My sit bones will no longer be supported by the saddle rather my crotch will be straddling the narrowing part of the saddle. Therefore, I'm forced to push against the handlebars with my arms to maintain my position on the saddle.
Would tipping the front end up help thereby leveling off the rear end of the Flite as to maintain support of the sit bones?
