comment Seatpost won't let me set my saddle “level”
The washer idea is worth trying - I fear plastic will eventually conform to the teeth pattern (teeth are very pronounced).

comment Seatpost won't let me set my saddle “level”
Its a fair point but I did say in my Q: "it is either slightly tipped forward or slightly tipped back. Neither are satisfactory". I've ridden it with both settings and have left it tilted forward as its the least awful of the two but I'm find I'm continually slipping down the saddle and having to re-adjust. All my other bikes have their saddles level so this the position I'm most comfortable with.

Thanks for the suggestion. The seatpost is carbon (Q2) so replacing it is going to be costly but probably worth it in the long term.

comment How do I correctly set the angle of my drop bars
I suppose I was really after how the mechanics do it when they set up all the new bikes in a bike shop. Sure many will adjust to suit themselves but a lot of people will leave it in the "generic" position. What is this position and is there a method/trick to setting it - like placing a spirit level across the first 90° angle after the stem?
