    Hi, am cycling daily for one hour but I want to know the proper sitting position.

    Hope for the suggestion...

    There’s been books written about bike fit.
    The most important part is good leg extension. To set saddle height, sit on saddle and put the heel on the pedal when it is at the lowest position. Now your leg should be pretty much straight. When pedalling, the pedal axle should be about 1/3 back from the tip of your toes, under the pad of your foot.
    When riding, if you feel your hips rocking, the saddle is too high.
    If you notice an urge to put the pedal in the arch of your foot, experiment with saddle fore-aft position.
