I’ve noticed that some riders have their seat angled so that the handle is a lot higher. I assume that people do this so that they can reach the seat more easily, but still have a lot of tuck. My question is, how do they do it? I’ve tried tightening the bolts so that the seat is angled more upwards, but it is nowhere near what I see some people riding. Anyone care to shed some light on this?
They do it with a part called a rail adaptor combined with a bike style rail seat post. This allows you to adjust your uni saddle like a bike saddle. People tilt their saddles for a number of reasons. I have my coker saddle tilted because it puts your weight onto the back of the saddle, and saves your butt on long rides.

The post you buy will depend on your frame. You need the right size.
…and some have a Scott Wallis carbon fiber seat base that eliminates the need of a rail adapter.
SW stopped making them for a while. I don’t know if he’s resumed production or not.
Also some people intentionally bent their post in a vice to achieve that incline.
