seat post height?

Post by Kyle_Destroye » Fri, 28 Dec 2007 08:33:06

My Torker DX post was waayyyyy too tall when I bought it.

I'm 5'11" and I hacksawed it a couple inches but I still can't find a
picture perfect height. I've noticed that other unicycles seem lower,
but I have fairly tall legs.

Any trick of finding the perfect trials post length?

**Shifty eyes**
The unicycle on the ground, in a straight position, is just over my
crotch. Maybe everyone else should be riding with their seat near their
crotch?

If you wanna ride seat in trials you have it pretty low, if you wanna
ride SIF (seat in front) trials you wanna have the seat, as Danni said,
slightly above crotch level. Try and learn SIF trials first and if you
don't like that style you can cut it down even lower to seat in trials.

seat post height?

Here is something you can try and it works...
Measure your inseam and set the height of the seat to your actual
inseam. Measure from the bottom of the crank to the middle of the seat,
not the top. That would be an ideal position to ride long distance. If
you don't feel comfortable, you sure have a good starting point.

For trials start lowering from this height until it feels confortable!

No, you just quoted someone. And in addition to what I said, I also
gave him advice on what to do with his post for now.

It's not outdated information, so post dates don't really matter since
the user he's asking is still active.
