Wasn't this just covered in the Lemond

formula thread. Something like .881 X your real inseam (not pants inseam).

Me, I like a high forward position and like to spin. So I'm about a half inch more than the formula. I used trial and error to arrive at this position. First, over time moved my seat forward as far is it will go (I would now like to move forward another couple of Cm). Then raised my seat up over time until it was clear my hips were rocking slightly when riding and then dropped it down until I had a nice smooth flow at high cadence. Foot position makes a big difference in seat height. I ride with the toe slightly down with the ankle locked. I find myself ankling when I am not focusing (old habits are hard to break and ankling is comfortable to me having done it for decades)
