i want to get more out of my gluts, and i was wondering how i could adjust my saddle or seat post to do this.

thanks!
The farther back you are, the more you'll use gluts. Also,bill

try lifting your legs on the upstroke. That'll involve your hip flexors.
Depending on your saddle, you may not need to adjust anything. I just sit back a bit on the long slow inclines, and my gluts get used. Come to think of it, on the long inclines, whether I sit back or forward in between or whatever, all of me gets used.
Also make sure you have the seatpost as high as possible(nm)Bruno S
