MTN is right about taking the bike in for a fitting. They can take a look at you on the bike and see what position is making for the better position. You may want to look at your saddle's nose and see if it is tilted downward. That can also make you want to shift back in the saddle. I hope you find a proper fit.

I think I'd take the bike to a bike shop and have them fit you.. you may be needing an adjustment in your positioning. We do that frequently for people at our bike shop.

I find that lately I'm shifting further toward the back of my saddle. It feels like a better pedaling position, though it may just put the saddle better under my sit bones.
Does that mean that I should move the saddle forward to ride on the wider part of the saddle...or back to gain a better angle to pedal?

I'm just this GUY, ya know?
