Issue: Can’t find the proper saddle/seat position

Resolution: Correct Seat Adjustment

  1. The saddle on an upright or the seat on a recumbent bike should be set so that there is a slight bend in your knee at the bottom of your pedal stroke (with the "ball" of your foot over the axel of the pedal).

Resolution: Saddle Height Adjustment

  1. To set the saddle height on an upright bike, unscrew the seat pin counterclockwise approximately 2 revolutions.
  2. Hold the saddle and pull the knob away from the machine. Position the seat post in the correct position.
  3. Release the pin and turn the knob clockwise so that there is no "side to side" play in the seat post.
