2. Make surethe seat is adjusted properly
There are three more things to look for in detail.
A. Height: adjust it so that you have a slight bend in the knees when your
foot is parallel to the floor Also take note that it is the ball of your foot that
should contact your pedals. You do this by placing the crankarms directly
vertical of the floor. With a foot on the lowest pedal take note of the bend in
the knee. Again, it should be a slight bend; in fact, you should start with the
seat too high and then work your way done about 1/8 of an inch each time.
You'll know it's too high when your butt moves side to side as you try and
reach for the pedals. Also you'll hyperextend your legs. You don't want your
butt moving side to side.
