Seat position.

I am vertically challenged and I get more pedal efficiency with the seat higher, but it hurts maneuverability, so I will have to get used to riding with the seat lower in a less efficient position thus working different leg muscles, is it possible to get used to this as it is a pain in the a** to keep changing seat height. Do any of you just get used to riding in a lower seat position?

Buy a Gravity Dropper and never look back! It's the best thing I put on my trail bike.

The Gravity dropper looks like a good idea, The bike is a small frame 14" and I think it is mostly I have been out of the saddle for so long I have to start over as I used to ride 40 miles a day and think nothing of it.
