moved my seat up

Thought my seat was too high when the ThudBuster bottomed out (apparently the seat post is longer than my bike accepts), but no, it's great! My legs straighten fully if I push my heels down below the pedals, which takes effort; otherwise I've got a good extension without overextending. I sit more firmly on the seat, but not too hard. I moved the seat up 5mm too, which has helped because I was scooting back a lot.

This is much, much better. I thought my seat was already high enough that I didn't want to extend any more; but I think I came 2cm or so higher, and it's fine. If I stand, I stand over the seat by about 4-5cm I think.

Wonderful, is it something else you like to adjust or you just wanted to inform about your experience?
