Where do I gain 6 cm?

by jpothecary   February 18, 2013  

Hi, I'm playing about with my bike fit on my Planet x Pro...I've been all over the Interweb and know about how to measure alignement etc
I thought I would measure my centre pedal (at bottom of stroke to top of saddle dimension. This came out at 90.5cm My floor to crotch is 84CM I double checked on my Mountain bike and that was also 90CM
Is it too early on a Monday to be doing Maths??

Logic tells me that the pedal should be at 84cm or a little less for 10 dgree bend

Am I missing something?

yeah, the length between your heel and cleat + depth of the pedal/cleat. If you tried pedalling with your heel with no shoes on, than the seat would be too high.

You probably have a heel-up pedalling style.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice...
