Do you have anything yet? I am particularly interested in the seat. I was supposed to test the xl-seat, but it never materialized. Wondering about it. The basic hoagie was too short for me.

Just a note, to say that the new XL Hoagie seat REALLY fits me well, and is "Xstream-ly" comfortable... pun intended. THANK YOU, Randy....

Distance-wise, 40 miles -- time-wise, 3 hours. No rando 200Ks planned until the weather improves....

Any issues with slipping? I have not been successful in keeping mine still.
Check out the bracket on this bike. Seems to be a piece of something on the frame under the bracket. Maybe something to keep it from slipping?

I haven't experienced any bracket slippage at all -- however, I could see putting piece of inner tube rubber inside the clamp -- might improve the hold. I may do that, myself, just because...

I did put a piece of dense foam below the lumbar curve, to reduce that curvature a bit -- you can see it in the last pics of the "ADEM" set.

May try a little inner tube.

Will not mess with the seat until after the headrest arrives. It has been delayed, but according to aeroDon will arrive next weekend. My intent is to lay the seat back as far as my reach and handlebars will allow. I hope I can recline and ride it <30°. The few rides I have taken aboard the hoagie XL have been without significant discomfort.
