How To Adjust Your Seat Height

When you are setting the height of your stationary bike, a good rule of thumb is to place your seat height at the level of your hip, when you are standing next to the bike. On the bike, this should place your leg at a position, where your knee is very slightly bent, when the pedal is fully extended. Feel free to checkout the video above if you are confused. When pedaling, your knee should never be fully straight when you are biking as this decreases the overall power in your pedal. As just mentioned, there should be a slight bend in the knee when the pedal is fully pressed down. That’s all there is to it! You may need to adjust this slightly based off different lengths in your limbs, but this is a good place to start.
