How to Set Your Bicycle Seat Height

Looking for the best method to set your seat height on your bike? In this video, Reggie will show you how to take an accurate measurement and apply it to your bicycle.

Setting the proper seat height is important for 2 reasons:

1. If you set the seat height too low, you will feel uncomfortable and your pedaling will be less efficient
2. If you set the seat height too high, you strain certain muscle groups which can lead to injury, and this is also less efficient.

The best part is that you can do this all in the comfort of your own home, with simple household items. No fancy bike fitter necessary!
