Saddle height - check it

At the risk of stating the bleedin' obvious. I was carrying out some routine checks on my bike the other day and thought I'd check the saddle height against the figures I'd recorded when the bike was first set up. My saddle had dropped by over 1cm ! It must have been a gradual slip, because I certainly didn't notice it. So if you don't already - get your tape measures out!
I've now wrapped some insulating tape around the bottom of the stem to see if there is a problem.

    Paint a tiny bit of white paint onto the post, just to show the level, then you can always set it perfectly straight away, and you'll know when it's slipped at all.
