In trying to sort out my new brooks saddle and it's digging into my sack, I've started looking at seat height. Figuring a lower seat would put me more upright and take pressure off the front.
I've tried entering my 36.5" (927mm) inseam on various on line calculators including Zinn's and they all come up at 1010-1014mm. I currently have my seat at 43" or 1092mm as measured from the center of the pedal shaft to a straightedge on the top of the seat. Sure there is some space taken up by the pedal and shoe, but it's not that much. It is a MTB but I mainly ride it on pavement, so I'm using the road bike fit guide.
Do I really have the seat that much too high?
What am I missing or doing wrong?
