    Cinder cone unbalanced?

    Hi all,
    Last weekend was the first time I was able to take my Cinder Cone through some technical stuff. It was great and very manoeuvrable through the single tracks but when climbing it seemed to lack real balance! I was unable to stop either the front wheel lifting or put enough weight on the back to prevent a slide.
    Also I notice that the saddle tends to sit quite well back from the bottom bracket which is now exasperated since I’ve fitted a thudbuster.
    Has anyone else noticed this? Any ideas to get around this?
    I’d be most grateful for any advice?

    Sounds like a fit issue. Can not get more specific without seeing you on and riding the bike.
    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    The frame is the same size as my other bikes – my issue is with the saddle position. It does not sit directly over the bottom bracket.
