Best answer: Should your bike seat be level?

Is it better to ride a bike with the seat high or low?

What is the best seat position on a bike?

Make sure that the seat is facing straight ahead or your riding position will be awkward and uncomfortable. Place the ball of your foot on the pedal when you ride. There should now be a slight bend (25 degrees) in your knee when the pedal is at its lowest point. This is your optimal seat height.

What should my saddle height be?

If your saddle height is correct, your heel should just graze the pedal at the bottom of the pedal stroke (in the 6 o’clock position). When riding, if you encounter pain at the front of your knee, raise the saddle slightly. If you have pain in the back of the knee, drop the saddle.
