Setting the best seat height will improve your comfort and performance while reducing fatigue. To do it the Bicycle Doctor recommends the Holmes Method. Although it’s a bit technical, it’s the best way to establish the ideal seat heat.

What is the Holmes Method? The Holmes method is based on setting your seat height with a knee angle of 145 to 155 degrees.

Knee Angle For Best Seat Height Adjustment

A simple protractor and two plastic rulers is all you need to see if you have the best seat height setting.

If the height of your seat has been wrong for awhile then setting the correct height may not feel comfortable at first. It can take a couple of weeks for your body to adjust to the new setting. Once you adapt your performance will go up and your fatigue will go down.

Give it a try. I’m sure you’ll agree.
