How To Set Saddle Height

You want about a 25-degree bend in your knee when the crankarm is fully extended.

If you’re new to cycling — or have just purchased a new bike — it’s a good idea to get a professional bike fit. But if you’re simply trying to dial in saddle position, you can probably sort it out on your own. Just know that getting your saddle to the right height is critical.
