Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Hi every one from Spain

I just bought new pedals time RXS and for my information I have to modify the sidle
distance to the botom bracket because my old pedals (look 357) have different cleats.
Any one nows how many centimeters or inch I have to put it down.
Sorry about my English but for my is a grate opportunity to practice and keep in touch
with people around the word hw loves bikes .

Hi and welcome.

While I can't give you specific advice re your pedal issue, I can suggest you try posting your question in the mechanics section.

Adiós y buena suerte,

He's asking how much he should lower/rise his saddle.

I would suggest trial and error. Just try riding it and adjusting as you go.

Won't be much - RXS have very little stack height, but the Looks aren't terribly much more - - half a cm maybe? Maybe less?

Really just have a go and see how it feels and adjust accordingly.

I taught English to a bunch of smart-assed kids from Cataluña this summer. Fortunately there were Russian and Italian girls they wanted to flirt with, so even when they didn't do any work at all, they got some English practice.

a lot of spanish speakers in here chaval... bien bonito barcelona en todo caso.

En referecia a tu pregunta probablemente no tengas q hacer nada pq la unica manera es probar. De lo q yo me preocuparia mas es de tener la bola del pie justo sobre el eje del pedal.

Buena suerte.
