recently i've started riding more on a road bike (Spesh Tarmac), and i'm a bit annoyed by a slack seat tube (comparing to MTB).
Have any one of you tried seat posts with `set forward` ?

also i'm in a process of changing antediluvian 175mm cranks to 170 Smile

If anyone is curious, i think the frame size is ok. 56cm, for 181cm guy with legs about 84cm.

No, I haven't. Road bike and mountain bike geometry feel very different - i just set the seat to the right height and adjust fore/aft incrementally as I ride. FWIW I tend to need to set my saddle back so a zero set back seat post tends to not work for me.

Have you had a bike fit on the road bike? You might find a second opinion may be helpful in getting your head and body fitted to the road bike.
