Consider laying back the seat just a little and/or adding something between the foam pad and the seat mesh to provide some lumbar support. Either of these will take pressure off your tailbone. You could even consider cutting the second zip tie from the bottom too.

Ultimately though, not all bent seats are equally comfortable for all people. I don't care for the euromesh seat because of a lack of lumbar curve, for instance.

By the way, if you tilt your seat back, you will need to move it slightly forward to maintain the same reach to the pedals.
