2 bikes question...(3 posts)

2 bikes question...african
Aug 28, 2002 6:29 AM
Just got my new bike, pics coming I promise. Now my tri bike the seat is about 1.5 inches higher than the seat on my new road bike. Is that an issue? Or is that just because the one is a tri bike (professionally fitted on) and the other is a road bike, fitted on but just a quick fit. Thanks.

P.S. the tri bike is a road bike with aero bars and forward seat post.

measure from center BB to top of seat on both bikes. Distance should be the same.

Geometry dicates as seatangle increases, seat must be raised to maintain same distance.
great point here........Dave Hickey

I have two bikes that when they are side by side, one saddle is about an inch higher than the other. Both have the same BB to top of saddle measurement. The BB height on one bike is an inch higher than the other.
