Inseam x 0.883 makes saddle too high!

Recommended Posts

So, I'm a new cyclist (one month old) and I've been trying to get the correct saddle height. I've watched so many videos including yours but using the prescribed method of measuring from the top of the saddle to the middle of the crank makes the saddle too high so much that I can't mount or dismount safely. Please help cause my right knee is hurting already. Thanks.

The "inseam x 0.8" method is just the starting point. If you FEEL the saddle is to high, you should definitely lower it, by 1-3 mm each time, until it feels right.
