Seat height...

well, I was playing around with my bike the other day and playing with the seat height, and realized that I actually pinch the seat the easiest when it is completely slammed. Anyone else this way, or am I just short?

I also cut my post a little bit, but will probably cut it more when I am sure I like my seat completely slammed.

Seat heights are pretty much the same, except one is slammed and one isn't.

If you noticed, the seat tube on my purple bike is quite large, so my seat really isn't slammed.

Yes, I did notice that, and I guessed that was where you were going with it. I want your Macneil though.

Plenty of pros and other riders manage to do it. I'm not sure how either though.

It feels like you are pinching the cranks... so you just pretty much pinch with the lower part of your legs rather than with your knees.
