Can't Tilt Saddle Nose Down
#1
I've been trying to adjust the angle of the Brooks Swift I have installed on my current bike. I currently have the nose tilted slightly upward but I've noticed a little discomfort lately with this setup. I tilt the nose down and tighten the bolt but the nose goes back up to the way it was before. I've tried applying pressure on the nose of the saddle while tightening to no avail. What can I do to solve this problem? Here are pictures:

After a little bit of fiddling, I figured it out. I wasn't loosening the clamp bolt enough to adjust the angle.

Yeah looking at the last picture you posted there an allen head bolt right under the saddle that is probably the does all bolt. Glad you got it worked out and nice Saddle.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
