How high do you ride?

Discussion in ' archive' started by Changinglinks.C, Apr 26, 2004.

  1. I would like to know what height off-road unicyclists put
    their seat. I am currently working on hopping and guess that
    my seat is still too high. To get a relative measurement
    that people can easily understand, please submit your
    "height PERCENTAGE."

    1. Measure from the center on the axle to the top of the
    seat. (just estimate where the seat would compress to
    with your weight on
    2. Measure with the end of the tape in the crotch, down to
    the floor (please rember to measure WITH riding shoes and
    shorts on)

    measurement 1. [divided by] measurement 2. = height

    3. My seat height is at 31.5 inches
    4. My inseam is 38" with shoes on

    4.1 / 38 = 83%

    I am guessing that seat is about 4.5 ft higher than my axle.

    Lets going to calculate it. When i do trials the seat is
    standing at the lowest point. I have got a 350 mm seatpost,
    20 inch wheel. So 10 inch until the axe.

    10 inch = 25,4 cm 350 mm = 35 cm total = 60,4 cm

    If i should put the seat on the real hight, it wil come
    betwean 10 and 15 cm higher, so lets take 12,5 cm.

    Trial = 60,4 cm Freestyle = 72,9 cm
    % = 60,4 / 72,9 x 100 % = 82,9 %

    So i will come around 80 and 85 percent.
