How To Adjust Your Bike Seat

Slide 2

Know that a seat at the correct height leads to comfortable, even pedal strokes. You know your seat is at the right height if you can keep your hips stable on the bike instead of rocking them back and forth to reach the bottom of the pedal stroke. When your foot is at the lowest point while pedaling, you want your knee to be slightly bent, not locked out completely straight or curved.

Slide 3

Measure your inseam 

Slide 4

Learn how your seat post adjusts

Slide 5

Adjust the seat height to your measured length. Gently slide the seat post up or down to reach your ideal measurement. It can help to nick the post at the right height, so you can find this adjustment again if the seat slips or someone borrows the bike.

Slide 6

Tighten the seat firmly

Slide 7

Take A Test Ride Head out into the driveway and go for a slow test ride. Make sure you can easily reach the pedals and get onto the bike, and you knees are not locked. Try standing while you pedal to make sure you can comfortably get out of the saddle. 

Slide 8

Troubleshoot any issues by moving the seat slightly up or down. If you have knee pain, the biggest cause is usually your seat height. Depending on what the pain is, you likely have different problems. However, if the pain does not go away with seat adjustments you should see a doctor.

Slide 9

Know that the angle and forward position of a bike seat will affect your riding comfort.

Slide 10

Loosen the bolt underneath the seat to change forward/backward seat position. On the back of the seat, pointing down at the back wheel, is a small bolt that controls the seat placement. It connects to a bracket that clamps onto small metal tubes that hold the seat in place.

Slide 11

Make sure the seat is far enough forward for a comfortable ride. 

Slide 12

Make sure that your seat angle is level with the floor. Use a carpenter's level to make sure the seat is flat -- this evenly distributes your weight for more comfortable riding. That said, if you experience discomfort in your crotch you can adjust the seat a little, though no more than 3 degrees in either direction.

Slide 13

Loosen the bolts on the side of the seat to change the seat angle.
