The early ones had aluminum bolts and yes broke and you fell off the back. I even saw some with the steel bolts brake at the mount that held the screws on a light woman rider but she did push the seat far back.

Was the front screw perhaps prone to breakage with the saddle set back as far as it would go..or something worse? Would it be OK for light riders?
