I hope the festive season is being good to those who celebrate, and that peeps are keeping safe.
I have a bike fit question for those in the know. But a bit of a back story.
My saddle post appears to be stuck in my bike. Carbon fiber frame, aluminum seat post.
Having tried WD-40 through the bottle cage bosses and using a certain amount of elbow grease, it still wasnt budging.
I am going to contact a few LBS’s in the new year, but I am reluctant to spend over a certain amount as I dont think the bike is worth it.
The thing is, I only want to drop my saddle by about 5-10 mm
Can I ask those in the bike fitting know how, if I can get my hand on on shorter cranks, and dont adjust the saddle height, I am in effect “lowering” the height?
I am currently running 175mm cranks, so going to 165, or 170 would have the desired 5 - 10mm drop?
I can get some shorter cranks off friends, so it may be worth trying if it is as simple as that?
This is purely just advise on the bike fit / crank length side of things for know. Any advice on that front would be appreciated.
