Having both the SM and Hoagie seats for my Xstream26 helps make it a very versatile bike -- I use the SM for more upright seating for night rides and bumpier trail rides, with wide tires, and the Hoagie (and faster tires) for more 'go-fast' situations. Here are a couple photos showing the difference in recline (I could increase the SM recline, but like it where it is. Also, I can't run the Hoagie at this recline with the 1.75" tires -- insufficient clearance!)

This bike is looking like a true workhorse! Nice set up.

It is, indeed... and I suppose pushing those heavier wheels and tires will help keep me in shape during the reduced mileage winter months!!! But those 1.75" MP tires are CUUUUSHHHYYYY....
